    • 250 grams of lupini beans
    • The juice of 1 lime
    • 1 teaspoon of ground cumin

    1. Lupini beans are very bitter. They must be boiled and soaked in several changes of water for several days.

    3. Soak the lupini beans for 24 hours and drain the next day.
    4. Fill a pot with water and add the beans.
    5. Bring to a boil then leave to simmer until the bean is soft but firm. Drain again and add to salter water.
    6. Continue to change the salted water until the bitterness subsides.
    7. To serve, add the beans to a serving dish, add the lime juice and the cumin and mix through.
