  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • 2 cloves of garlic, minced

  5. Now, add the cooked lupin beans to the pan and mix well with the onions and garlic.
  6. Add coriander powder, turmeric powder, red chili powder, and salt to taste. Mix everything well so that the beans are evenly coated with the spices.
  7. Cook for 5-7 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the lupin beans are heated through and have absorbed the flavors of the spices.

  10. Serve hot as a side dish with rice or bread.




  • 2 cups Butterfly Lupinbeans (soaked for 24 hrs)
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil or vegetable oil
  • Salt to taste
  • Optional seasonings: paprika, garlic powder, onion powder, cumin, chili powder, etc.


  1. If you’re using dried lupin beans, rinse them thoroughly under cold water and remove any debris. If you’re using cooked lupin beans, make sure they are well-drained.
  2. Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C).
  3. In a large bowl, toss the lupin beans with olive oil until they are evenly coated. You can adjust the amount of oil depending on your preference and the amount of lupin beans you’re using.
  4. Spread the lupin beans out in a single layer on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper or aluminum foil. Make sure they are evenly spaced out so they roast evenly.
  5. Sprinkle the lupin beans with salt and any other seasonings you like. You can get creative here and use your favorite spices to add flavor.
  6. Place the baking sheet in the preheated oven and roast the lupin beans for about 20-25 minutes, stirring halfway through, until they are golden brown and crispy.
  7. Keep an eye on the lupin beans towards the end of the roasting time to prevent them from burning.
  8. Once the lupin beans are done roasting, remove them from the oven and let them cool slightly before serving.
  9. Serve the roasted lupin beans as a crunchy snack on their own, or use them as a topping for salads, soups, or grain bowls.

Enjoy your homemade Butterfly roasted lupin beans!
