Borlotti Beans

About Borlotti Beans

A variety of kidney bean, this is a large plump bean that is pinkish-brown in colour with reddish-brown streaks. Borlotti beans are widely used in Italian cooking and have a sweetish flavour with a smooth creamy texture. 

Uses for Bortlotti Beans

To prepare borlotti beans, soak them overnight in 1 cup of water to 4 cups of beans. As a result of this step, nutrients in the beans are more readily available and the beans themselves are more digestible. Cook beans by covering them with water, bringing to a boil, then simmering for an hour. Excellent for stews and casseroles.
