Organic Borlotti beans
Creamy, plump organic borlotti beans - an unsung star of the store cupboard.
Cooked organic borlotti beans (also called cranberry or rosecoco beans) with no added salt. Creamy, plump, and chestnut-like in flavour, they’re an unsung star of the store cupboard. Toss them straight into soups, stews and casseroles. Or, for a simple side, add wilted seasonal greens, olive oil and a squeeze of lemon – and you’re done.
Fantastic in stews, salads, hummus, or just fried with herbs and garlic and dressed with olive oil
How to prepare
Throw them into a hearty soup, stew or casserole – minestrone, ribollita or pasta e fagioli. Mix with tuna, beans and red onions for a quick summer salad, or make a simple side for meat or fish by heating them with garlic, rosemary and olive oil.
Ingredients and allergens
- 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.
