The Legumes are annual herbaceous plants belonging to the Fabaceae family, whose seeds are rich in proteins. Legumes have always been a primary source of sustenance for humanity given their widespread use. Borlotti beans are some of the most colourful and pretty beans out there. Also called cranberry beans, this vibrant ingredient has a light, beige-pink colour with spots of red-brown.
Ideal for casseroles, as a side dish, mixed into a soup or cooked and cooled to serve in a salad.
Popular in Italy and Portugal, the borlotti bean is versatile, easy to use, and super simple to prepare.
Even if they lose their vibrant colour while cooking, they retain their signature creamy texture.
