Sweet  •  Velvety  •  Plump 

 

These striking red-and-cream marbled beans are beloved around the world, especially Northern Italy. And for good reason: we love their plumpness, nutty flavor, and velvety smooth texture. As a bonus, they produce a rich, meaty broth, making these beans one of the best choices for stews and other brothy dishes. They hold their shape well, so try them in pasta and salads too.


As seen in the All the beans and The Italians sets.

Use a pressure cooker

Skip the pre-soak step

Salt early and liberally

Plant protein: Boost your plant-based protein intake, naturally. One cup of cooked beans provides ~16 g of protein (varies by bean).

Lots of fiber: Beans have an impressive 12-20 grams of fiber per cup (varies by bean). Fiber helps keep your cholesterol levels at bay and your digestion in check ;)

Sustained energy: The complex carbs in beans keep your blood sugar levels steady, helping you feel energized for hours.

Key nutrients: High in iron, zinc, folate, potassium, magnesium, and antioxidants (oh my!), beans have everything you need to feel healthy and happy daily.

May we suggest...

Pasta e fagioli

With as many variations as there are bean varieties, this Italian favorite is the perfect way to show off brothy beans in all their glory. Literally "pasta and beans," the only other ingredients you need are a handful of vegetables, good Parmesan...

Sourcing notes

Wyoming’s Bighorn Basin region has a long history of agriculture, most famous today for its beans and golden barley. These crops grow right nearby the glacier-carved valleys of Yellowstone National Park. Family farms benefit from the area’s cool nights and hot days, fertile soil, and rich supply of mountain water.

We partnered with the University of Wyoming’s Research and Extension Center (PREC) in Powell to trial uncommon varieties that are well-suited for the area’s growing conditions. The community relies on PREC’s research on topics such as crop rotations, water use efficiency, and organic growing methods.

High quality, great flavor

I made a version of Carla Lalli Music's pasta e fagioli last night with these beans as the star and it was amazing. I used an instant pot for the recipe and the beans plumped up beautifully while keeping their shape and texture. No tough skin and they had a great sweet flavor. I can't wait to try more beans from Primary Beans!
