Cannellini beans

Nutty  •  Silky  •  Hearty

  

These long, creamy white beans are quintessentially Tuscan and savored throughout Europe. We love their gentle, nutty flavor and silky yet firm texture. They’ll hold up in just about anything slow-simmered soups and stews, pasta dishes, and marinated salads. They also make a luscious, super-smooth puree. Don’t skimp on the olive oil.

Nutritious for all human beans

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.

Delicious beans

I have a terrible history of dried beans taking an extraordinary amount of time to cook, even thoughI tried different places I thought had turnover. Thus, I ordered the 2021 crop with some trepidation. They cooked in a reasonable time and were tasty and wonderful. I'm ordering more!

Hummus

The hummus I made with these beans was spot on - great texture, mixed with tahini, roasted garlic, white miso, lemon, salt + pepper and olive oil. A food processor makes it super easy and it keeps safely in the fridge, melding flavors. Looking forward to trying more ways to use this favorite variety!

Cannellini Bean Heaven!

I used your Cannellini beans to make a recipe for Spicy White Bean Stew with Broccoli Rabe (New York Times by Alison Roman). So delicious!

The Cannellini beans cooked quickly and were creamy and full of flavor. I am delighted with your product. Thank you.
