Flageolets were first developed in France in the 1800s and are now cultivated in California and Australia. These tender bush-type beans are a lovely pale green and are very popular in classic French country cuisine. They have a mild flavor and creamy texture, and hold up well in soups and stews. Try them as a side dish, or in soups and salads.
Flageolet beans are a wonderful nutrient-dense food. They're an excellent source of dietary fiber, plant protein, and iron, and are packed with vitamins and minerals. They're also low in fat and sodium and are cholesterol free.
Flageolet beans can be substituted for navy beans, and are commonly used in casseroles, salads and stews. They are also popular served with lamb, bacon, chicken and fish. See the back of our package for our favorite Flageolet Bean recipes—Easy Cassoulet and Flageolet Bean & Tuna Salad.

- My new favorite bean
- I saw these petite pale green beans at Whole Foods and thought that I needed to try them. They soaked overnight and boiled and simmered a bit longer than the packaging stated. After they were mostly cooked I added olive oil and sel du boucher (salt w/ rosemary, thyme, sage, and marjoram.) They are absolutely delightful and now my favorite bean. They have officially usurped Cannellini!
