Black Turtle beans are shiny, dark, and rich in flavor. They originate from Central and South America. Nowadays, the major commercial producers of black beans are India and Brazil.

This particular variety of beans is very close to red and white beans in many characteristics. However, black beans hold their shape better while cooking and their original rich taste is often compared to mushrooms.

Health Benefits of Black Beans

Like all other legumes, black beans offer some major health benefits:

  • The best source of fiber
    A cup of cooked black beans provides you with 15 grams (half of the daily dose) of healthy fiber.
  • An exceptional source of protein
    The same amount of turtle beans also provides you with 15 grams of highly digestible protein (one-third of the daily dose). No other fruits, vegetables, meats, or grains can provide such a good protein fiber combination.
  • Can steady the digestive process
    Such a unique and efficient combination of protein and fiber allows black beans to steady your digestive process, which results in the optimal chemical balance of bacteria and microorganisms in your intestines.
  • Can regulate blood sugar levels
    As turtle beans normalize your digestive process, they have the same effect on the food breakdown rate, which prevents severe blood sugar level fluctuations.
  • Can reduce the risk of heart disease
    Soluble fiber, which you can obtain from consuming black beans has been proven to reduce the risk of coronary heart disease and myocardial infarct.
  • Cancer prevention
    According to the results of multiple studies, legumes are considered to be one of the most efficient cancer-prevention foods. Black (turtle) beans are considered to be most efficient of their kind. They are especially helpful in treating and preventing colon cancer.

How to Sprout Black Beans at Home

  1. Yields approximately 3 Cups (1/2 lb.) of Sprouts. Prep 3 Tablespoons of beans, then transfer into a bowl or into your Sprouter. Add 2-3 times as much cool (60°-70°) water. Mix beans up to assure even water contact for all.
  2. Allow beans to soak for 6-12 hours. Empty the beans into your Sprouter (if necessary). Drain off the soak water. Rinse thoroughly with cool (60°-70°) water. Drain thoroughly! Set your Sprouter anywhere out of direct sunlight and at room temperature (70° is optimal) between Rinses. Ensure sufficient air-circulation is provided.
  3. Always be sure to Drain very thoroughly. The most common cause of inferior sprouts is inadequate drainage. Rinse and Drain again every 8-12 hours for 3 days.

Enjoy your home-made sprouts!

Ingredients for Cozy Autumn Black Bean Soup:

  • 2 cups dried black beans, soaked and rinsed
  • 1/2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 2 carrots, chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic, finely chopped
  • 1 tbsp ground chili powder
  • 1 tsp dried basil
  • 1 tsp dried oregano
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 1/2 tsp ground black pepper
  • 4 cups vegetable broth
  • for serving: chopped fresh cilantro or parsley and lime wedges


  1. Soak the beans overnight or about 8-12 hours. Drain and rinse.
  2. In a large soup pot, heat oil over medium heat. Add onions, carrots, and garlic. Cook, stirring frequently until onions are translucent and starting to brown about 10 minutes.
  3. Add all the other ingredients to the pot, except the lime and parsley. Stir to make sure everything is combined. Bring mixture to a boil before reducing the heat to medium and letting the soup simmer for about 40 min, or until the beans are tender and creamy. Remove bay leaves.
  4. At this point, you can either keep the beans whole or puree using an immersion blender or traditional blender to your desired texture.
  5. Taste soup and season with additional salt and pepper, if needed. Spoon soup into bowls for serving and garnish with lime wedges and parsley.

Great taste. This brand has a better taste and keeps its shape better than all other brands I've tried. They're great for both salads and soups. Often, we eat these "as is" for a side dish.
As expected.
Clean, delicious. Excellent product, will purchase again.
Great Brand! Great Beans! Love this brand! Good Beans!
Cool Beans. I've been grinding these beans up with my grain mill to make black bean flour, and they seem well-suited for that purpose. Plus, they're reasonably priced.
