Borlotti beans are a large, plump variety of kidney bean distinguished by their pinkish color and characteristic red streaks. Casa Corneli's Borlotti beans have a slightly sweet, nutty flavor and creamy texture. The dried beans can be soaked overnight and simmered in water with aromatics until tender, then used in a variety of dishes.
Versatile and tasty, Borlotti beans can be added to soups, stews, or spooned over toast. Stew the beans in tomato sauce and serve over creamy polenta. Add sautéed greens like swiss chard to a bowl of brothy beans. Toss with pasta or make a classic minestrone.
