Organic White Cannellini Beans are very popular in Italy and are related to the kidney bean. These tasty beans are excellent in salads, soups, and stews. Popular dishes include minestrone and Fagioli (pasta and beans). Cannellini beans (as are most beans) are low in fat and are high in fiber for good digestive function and also to assist in lowering cholesterol re-absorption.
Remember that combining beans or pulses with a grain (like rice) gives you complete protein. NOTE: Before use, all beans should be soaked in cold water overnight or for at least ten hours.
Make sure you cover the beans with a large volume of water because they will swell up considerably. When ready to cook, discard the soaking water and briefly rinse the beans under running water. This process is important as to reduce burping, flatulence and abdominal discomfort.
