Cannellini Beans, known as the Italian White Kidney or Fasolia Bean are often the bean of choice in Tuscan cooking. They are related to the Kidney Bean and resemble them in shape and size. Creamy white in color with a mild, creamy texture, the Cannellini Bean has a slightly nutty flavor. Cannellini Beans are about ½ inch long, and have a tough seed coat. They are a significant source of calcium and iron and can be served on their own with butter and some spice or used in bean salads or pasta dishes. This bean was originally grown in Argentina by Italian immigrants and later taken back to Italy where they are now grown commercially.

Ingredient Statement:

Excellent in Tuscan tuna and white bean salads, and a hearty addition to soups and stews. Try Cannellini Beans in a cold salad with marinated artichoke hearts, fresh basil and olive oil. Soak and cook, 1 cup dry yields 2 1/4 cups cooked.

Recommended Preparation Instructions:

Soak overnight. Rinse and place in a large pot and cover with fresh water. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer, covered, for 45 minutes until tender.
