Preparing this traditional Mediterranean snack food from the dried beans is not a process for the time-challenged, but it is not difficult and the results are delicious. Without the brine soak, bitter alkaloids would make lupini beans inedible.
"I have made this recipe several times over the last year, and they are fabulous! Reminds me of being a kid and eating them at our local Italian fest! Once you make these, you'll never go back to buying store bought again. Thanks for posting this."
