ถั่วแปบ Hyacinth bean. Used historically in several Northern Lan-Na culture spicy salads. We personally love to use the flower and leaves at Paste which can be lightly steamed or eaten raw. The bean itself can be a very interesting ingredient however it can be toxic unless it is deeply blanched and the water changed several times. At Paste we change the water up to 3 times #thaiingredients #thaicooking #pastebangkok
