Bob's Red Mill Cranberry Beans are beautifully speckled and medium-sized, with a mild, nutty flavor. You may know them as shell beans, cargamanto, or borlotti beans. Although they are similar in size to pinto beans, they are much sweeter with a more delicate texture. An excellent source of fiber and several minerals, with 10g of protein per serving, these beans pack a serious nutrirional punch. They are great in salads, soups, casseroles, stews, and bean dips and commonly used in the Italian dish pasta e fagioli - check out our recipe on the bag!
