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.

 

Looking for heirloom and organic beans? You're in the right place. There are plenty of nuances when it comes to beans, and our beans are from recent harvests, packed with flavor and nutrition, and grown by climate-conscious family farms.

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.

Sourcing notes

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.

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.

These are the best cannellini beans I've ever cooked with!

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.

creamy & delicious

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!
