Lupini Beans are yellowish-brown in colour and are members of the pea family.
Lupini Beans have a slightly bitter taste, which comes from alkaloids in them. Traditionally, they were so bitter that only livestock ate them, but someone figured out a couple thousand years ago how to make them edible. The process to render them palatable is sort of labourious, like olives, but fans say it’s worth the effort.
