Cooked organic borlotti beans (also called cranberry beans or rosecoco beans) with no added salt. Chestnut-like in flavour and creamy in texture, these beans are popular in Italian cooking and a great kitchen staple. As they’re pre-cooked, they’re ideal for weeknight cooking.

High in protein and fibre, borlotti beans work well in hearty salads: try eating with rocket and slices of tomato, drizzled with olive oil. They also hold their own well in wholesome casseroles, stews and soups, including winter minestrone and Turkish village soup.

How to store borlotti beans

Unopened borlotti beans can be stored indefinitely. Once opened, don’t keep your beans in the tin – turn them out into a covered bowl and they’ll last for 3 or 4 days in the fridge. They can also be frozen, though their texture becomes a bit mushy when thawed, so they’ll be better for stews than adding to salads.

Ingredients
