Cannellini beans from Poggio Aquilone in Umbria have a delicate flavor and silky texture that makes them the perfect nutritional boost for just about any dish. Toss them into soups, pasta and risotto, or serve them plain with some good olive oil and salt for a stellar side dish beside meat or fish. For a quick light lunch, toss them into a cold salad of tuna, parsley, and onion. Just ask Benedetta and Andrea Alberti what they think of their cannellini beans, and they will launch into stories of all the amazing things their grandma used to cook with them.
Pro tip - soak beans overnight in room temperature water and they’ll cook up in just an hour in boiling water the next day.
Rich in fiber, protein, enzymes and minerals, cannellini beans are an ancient peasant superfood.
