When boiled, their creamy and buttery consistency makes them appreciable even by the most refined palates.They are soft, tasty and pulpy, with a thin skin. Their curious black color with pink shades makes them seem to be hand-painted one by one. The shape of the bean is slightly flat, large in size and the color is white with purple/purple-red veins. Field picking takes place in August and September; they are then dried and usually stored for sale as a dry bean. Before cooking they are rehydrated in water for about 12 hours.

Red Diavoli beans use in the kitchen

Here is a sample recipe to cook your Red Diavoli beans

Red Diavoli beans stewed


  • Duration 2 h 10 min

Stewed Red Diavoli bean is a great way to cook this rare type of legume recently rediscovered. Italy, in fact, has always been a land rich in legumes, some of which are rare and of ancient traditions such as Red Diavoli beans. This type of bean is very meaty and tasty.


Serving size 4:

  • 400 gr of Red Diavoli beans Beans

  • 1 celery coast

  • 1 carrot

  • 1 onion

  • 1 clove of garlic

  • 4 slices of rustic bread

  • Extra virgin olive oil


Get a pack of dried Red Diavoli beans. Then take these Red Diavoli beans and pour them into a bowl. Fill the remaining volume with running water and let them soak for about 12 hours (one night).

Once invigorated, drain the Red Diavoli beans and let them dry on a cloth. Then take a normal pressure cooker and pour in the beans with as much water, if you are using a normal pot fill it completely. Let the beans cook for about 2 hours. However, taste and check the level of cooking (it takes a long time).

Once the Red Diavoli beans have been boiled, you can either prepare them immediately or let them cool with their broth and use them the following day.

Take a saucepan (a terracotta pan is also fine) and pour in a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil. Add a whole clove of garlic in a pan. Peel an onion, celery, and carrot and then chop them on a cutting board. Pour the chopped mixture into the saucepan. Brown the sauté for about 4-5 minutes.

Then pour in the Red Diavoli beans with a couple of ladlefuls of their broth. Continue cooking over medium heat, stirring occasionally so that the beans take on flavor. Taste and adjust the salt. Continue cooking for about 10 minutes, which is the time needed for most of the broth to dry.

Cut slices of rustic bread and then toast it slowly in the oven or on a grill. Add a little oil to each toasted slice.

Serve each portion of stewed Red Diavoli beans with one or two slices of toasted bread. The portions should be very hot.

The Red Diavoli beans are dark brown beans, speckled with purple. Sweet, with a hint of olive, they have chewy skin, and creamy texture.

Suggestion: Serve them simply with extra virgin olive oil, sea salt, and grilled Tuscan bread or use them to add a distinct layer of flavor to bean salads.
