Our beloved grandfather, Poppy Sol, started this business in an open-air market. Three generations later, we’re still bringing smiles to our customers' faces.
Popular in Italy, Lupini beans make a nutritious and tasty treat.
These are dried and do need to be cooked.
Pick over beans to remove any debris. Soak overnight, drain and rinse. Cover by several inches with fresh water and simmer for an hour.
Drain, rinse well, and cover with salted water (about 1 tablespoon per quart of water). Refrigerate.
Repeat this process every day for 5 days, or until the soaking brine is no longer bitter.
Beans will keep for weeks, covered with lightly salted water and refrigerated.
To serve as a snack, drain desired quantity of beans, drizzle with olive oil and freshly ground black pepper.

“Coming across your site is one of the best things to happen to me in recent memory! Finding Lupini beans is no easy feat, not only do you have bulk amounts of my all time favorite treat from childhood but you have prices that can't be beat (and I tried!). Thank you so much, you can count on return business.”

“I recently saw 2 pounds of dried lupini beans for $13.50. I got 5 pounds of lupinis from you for $14.50 + a free gift of Turkish figs. The lupinis arrived in record time, and are very nicely packaged. I couldn't be more pleased. Thank you.”

“My husband's mother was born in Italy, moved to Omaha, NE as a toddler, and it was their Italian tradition to have lupini during the holidays. We've never found a source to buy them since my husband moved to CA, so relied on family in Omaha to get them for us. Now, all the family in Omaha are gone, so we are so happy to have found you!!”
