Cannellini Beans Benefits
Cannellini beans are wonderfully nutritious. They’re fat free and an excellent source of fiber, folate, iron and magnesium. One 1/4 cup serving contains 11 grams of protein! Adding nutritious foods like dried cannellini beans to your diet may help control blood sugar levels; talk with your doctor.
These gourmet beans were originally cultivated in Argentina but eventually became popular in a number of Italian dishes‚ including minestrones, pasta e fagioli and bean salads, to name a few. Cannellini beans are excellent in soups, stews, chilis and puréed bean spreads or dips. Because they hold their shape better than other white beans, they are a favorite for ragouts and bean salads. See our website for recipes for a hearty Cannellini Bean Soup and a luscious Cannellini Herb Spread with garlic.
Sure, you could heat up canned cannellini beans, but it’s simple to cook dry cannellinis; just cover them with cold water and simmer for 60-90 minutes. You’ll have delicious, flavorful beans without all the excess sodium of canned beans.
