Hello, today's recipe is Japanese brown rice which uses a black Sengoku soybeans.
Do you know Kurosengoku soybeans? A type of black soybean produced mainly in a small town called Hokuryu in Hokkaido. Smaller than common black beans, the outside is black, but the inside is green when you look at the cross section.
Since the 1970s, it has been difficult to cultivate it because of sunshine hours and climatic conditions and farmer stopped growing this Kurosengoku soybeans. After that, cultivation began around 2005, but until now, there is a dramatic revival story, and it is called “Miraculous Kurosengoku Soybeans”. If i hear such a story, that make me want to support this special beans.
I happened to stop by Hokuryu when i was visiting my parents in hokkaido with kids then i found this black beans. come when I returned to Hokkaido. I like this black beans as it is small and easy to use so i often use it for cooking since then.
Nutorition of Kurosengoku Soybeans
“The anthocyanins contained in Kurosengoku soybeans promote the metabolism of fat and reduce the built-in fat. When the built-in fat is reduced, adiponectin called longevity hormone increases. Adiponectin repairs damaged blood vessels. It is said to be effective in preventing blood vessel aging, lowering blood pressure and blood sugar, etc. Anthocyanins are contained in the black skin of kurosengoku soybeans, and its content is about 2 times that of common black beans. "
