Cannellini Beans are white kidney beans with a mild, nutty flavor and smooth, tender texture. They are extremely popular in Italian cuisine. Also known as "Italian white kidney beans" or "fasolia beans," they resemble kidney beans in size and shape, but are creamy off-white in color.
Carefully sort beans and rinse thoroughly. Soak beans overnight. Rinse and place in a large pot and cover with fresh water. Bring to a boil for 10 minutes, reduce heat and simmer, covered, for 1 to 1-1/2 hours until tender.
Storage & handling
Store in a dry, cool place.
This creamy spread takes advantage of the smooth texture of our Cannellini Beans paired with fresh goat cheese. It's great served spread on freshly toasted (or better yet, freshly grilled) slices of a hearty sourdough or whole grain bread.
