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.
Minnesota’s Lake Country is a hub for kidney beans– red, light red, and white (aka Cannellini). The area’s growers are experienced in precision agriculture– a method of farming dedicated to creating efficiency while protecting the environment. Farms also rely on crop rotations, and beans are typically grown in rotation with potatoes, alfalfa, and corn. The natural terrain provided by the lakes and pine trees allows the beans to thrive in sandy soils with little threat of disease, and the fields require little to no irrigation. We partnered with Green Valley Bean, grower-owned and operated, as a source of the region's famous Cannellini beans.

I made a ham and white bean soup with these beans and it was fantastic! I highly recommend these beans - they're the best I've ever tasted.
made these in my instant pot for the first time yesterday and now have beans for a whole week of delicious meals! I followed the instructions in the bean guide and it was super easy. I think my IP might be a bit old so it took 50 mins to get these to cooked perfection! once they were cooked I tossed them with any herby oil (per PB's recipe page) and slathered it onto crusty sourdough. it was delightful and kept me full and satisfied for hours! can't wait to make more bean creations!
