Answers to burning Cool Beans questions
We’re on a mission to inspire healthy change in both what we eat and how food is made. Not only nutritious, beans do not tax the environment or our digestive systems the way meat consumption does – in fact, legume plants replenish topsoil with nitrogen. This recapture makes nitrogen available for other plants rather than needing to add liquid nitrogen that is created by burning a huge amount of fossil fuels.
What type of beans do you use?
To appeal to vegans and aspiring vegans alike, we use whole beans. Specifically, chickpeas (Tikka Masala), black eyed peas (Spicy Chipotle) and kidney beans (Moroccan Gold). Delicious and satisfying, our beans are “whole foods” which means we use all of their nutritious and fibrous skin and outer layers in our wraps. When you eat whole beans (and whole grain rice) you get more nutrition because their natural goodness remains intact.
Do you have a favorite?
Isn’t that like picking a favorite child? We love all our wraps equally but in different ways. As each wrap offers whole pieces of clean, plant-based ingredients, we know you will love them too.
Are your products gluten free certified?
Unfortunately, no our products are not gluten free certified. While we developed our products so that they do not contain any ingredients with gluten, the products are produced in a facility that also produces wheat and gluten based products. Because we cannot guarantee that there are not trace amounts of gluten in our wrap from the air or machines in the facility that also produce gluten based products, we suggest that consumers with Celiac disease avoid eating Cool Beans products. If in the future we can secure a manufacturing facility that is gluten free certified, then we will seek gluten free certification.
Do cows and chickens like Cool Beans Wraps?
Animals love us and we love animals. That’s why we do not farm their meat, sticking instead to plant-based protein sources. Note: we do not overtly recommend feeding Cool Beans Wraps to a cow, chicken, sheep or other farmed animal, although we bet they would love them too.
So how do I prepare Cool Beans Wraps?
Keep frozen until ready to cook. Then, you bring the heat.
1. Remove overwrap.
2. Wrap loosely in moist paper towel. For Spicy Chipotle and Moroccan Gold, microwave on HIGH for 1 minute 30 seconds. For Tikka Masala, microwave for 1 minute 45 seconds.
3. Flip and heat additional 1 minute 30 seconds. For food safety cook to 165°F internal temperature. Microwave times may vary. Caution: Product will be hot.
2. “For oven: Preheat oven to 375F. Remove overwrap. Wrap burrito in foil and place on baking sheet. Bake for 25 minutes. Carefully open oven and flip burrito, bake for an additional 25 minutes. Remove from oven and foil and enjoy. For food safety cook to 165°F internal temperature. Oven times may vary. Caution: Product will be hot.
In other words, just microwave and enjoy. Beep. Beep. Done!
