Adorned with cranberry colored markings, these beans are not related to the fruit that’s commonly found atop a steaming bowl of oatmeal.
Cranberry beans – better known as borlotti beans to those familiar with Italian cuisine – are mildly sweet, with a touch of nutty flavor (think chestnuts). With a creamy consistency akin to pinto beans, they’re a popular ingredient in salads, stews, soups and hummus-like spreads.
Cranberry beans are also packed with nutrition – just one ¼-cup serving provides 11 grams of filling fiber and 10 grams of satisfying protein; it’s no surprise that these uniquely flavorful legumes are beloved by vegetarians, dieters and foodies alike.
Soak, rinse and combine 1 cup cranberry beans with 4 cups water (enough to cover the beans completely) in a large pot. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer for approximately 60 minutes.
