I don't know of any that stay purple when cooked, but the Blue Coco beans that we've grown the past two years taste wonderful, especially if picked before they're too mature.

Cherokee Trail of Tears pole beans turn purple, but only when they've ripened to where the beans inside turn black, and by that point the pods are not fit for eating in my opinion.
