Bambara Beans


BiB’s bambara beans are the real deal. These beans can be used in place of chickpeas or other beans in your favorite vegan recipes. “Beef” up the protein on Meatless Monday by adding bambara beans to soups, stews or veggie burgers. Bambara has a naturally earthy taste and goes best with dishes that contain lots of flavors, so don’t be shy with the spices.

Bambara is known for its hardiness and should be boiled until soft. Try using an instant pot or pressure cooker for fast results.

What Exactly is Bambara?

Bambara is a nutrient-dense legume that is considered a “complete food.” Bambara contains quality carbohydrates, proteins and fats as well as essential amino acids and necessary vitamins. The bambara groundnut flourishes in drought-stricken climates and grows without the use of fertilizers or pesticides.

Our bambara is sourced directly from a women’s farming cooperative in Ghana. Every purchase from BiB helps local female farmers support their families and communities.

Bambara is a cousin to the peanut.  Those with peanut allergies should avoid bambara.
