Cannellini beans

Also known as white beans, cannellini beans are a very common legume in the Italian culinary tradition. They are produced and appreciated in recipes from central Italy, particularly Tuscany. And we at the Serangeli Agricultural Company certainly couldn't miss this product.

Cannellini beans, in addition to being consumed as a legume, are perfect for being transformed into flour. People who have a gluten allergy can therefore consider flour obtained from dried cannellini beans an excellent alternative to include in their diet.

Although very small, cannellini beans contain a large quantity of mineral salts and vitamins. Furthermore, their very low glycemic index makes them perfect for those who are following diets to combat overweight and diabetes.

Here are some of the other properties of cannellini beans.

  • They are a natural antioxidant because they slow down the formation of free radicals and the aging of cells.
  • They help make bones stronger.
  • They increase the perception of satiety and are therefore useful for those who want to lose weight.
  • They help expel waste thanks to the presence of many fibers and act as a real diuretic.
  • They give the right energy boost, thanks to the balanced content of proteins and carbohydrates.
  • They help keep cholesterol under control.

How can you store our cannellini beans?

You can also store cannellini beans for a long time, up to two years. The rules for their conservation are similar to those of other varieties of beans. Store them in a cool, dry place, away from heat sources. The ideal is to store them in a hermetically sealed glass container.

How can you enjoy our cannellini beans?

The first important information you need to remember is that raw cannellini beans are not edible. That's why you should always cook them before consuming them. Once we have purchased our dried cannellini beans, the cooking phase must always be preceded by a soaking phase. Pour the necessary quantity of product into a bowl and cover it with water: let it rest for 10 to 12 hours. Once the necessary time has passed, discard the water and rinse the beans under running water.

At this point you can give space to your culinary creativity. In fact, cannellini beans are suitable for the preparation of numerous dishes. You can cook delicious appetizers, such as small blended cannellini bean meatballs. You can continue by making velvety creams to also accompany fish, such as salmon or prawns. Cannellini beans, like all legumes, are the main ingredient of first courses such as soups. You can also use them as a base to prepare a delicate sauce for long pasta, such as spaghetti or bavette. Finally, if you want to try your hand at a famous traditional Tuscan dish, you can't miss the Fagioli all'uccelletto , with tomato and sausage. A tip: remember to also have a good slice of hot Tuscan bread to make the slipper. We are sure you won't be able to resist!
