Small and appealing, and a vital ingredient in your cooking.
Like all pulses, cannellini beans are rich in fibre and protein
(a must if you’re vegetarian),
delicious when eaten cold (a must in summer dishes),
and also in hot soups (a must for winter).
Eaten together with grains, they make a complete meal
(a must in packed lunches).
Are they or are they not in your kitchen?
Cannellini beans (also known as white beans), came to Italy after the discovery of America.
They originated in Tuscany but are now
grown throughout Italy.
