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.

 

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).

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 ;)

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!
