Borlotti Filotei 500g


Medium to large tan or hazelnut-coloured bean splashed or streaked with red, magenta or black. The high fibber content of Borlotti and other beans is known to have a beneficial effect in reducing cholesterol levels, blood pressure and heart disease risk. High in folate and packed with protein and soluble fibber, beans are both delicious and satisfying. A vital ingredient of the classic Southern Italian dish Pasta e Fagioli made with mixed pasta shapes. Also perfect in summer mixed bean salads with fresh tomato and parsley, soups with small pasta shapes or tossed with pasta and other healthy vegetables. Simply soak in water overnight (12 -18 hours minimum) then boil for 40 min
