Borlotti beans are a medium-sized cranberry bean varietal with an oblong shape. Noted for having a mild nutty flavor reminiscent of roasted chestnuts, their firm yet creamy texture is well suited for soups and salads. Fully cooked in purified water with nothing but salt, these vegan-friendly organic beans are also great on their own. Reheat over a low flame with fresh herbs and lemon zest for a quick and easy side that pairs well with chicken, pork, or garlicky greens.
Committed to quality, sustainability, and transparency from seed to jar, Maia Organic works directly with growers to offer this particular variety: “lingua di fuoco” (tongue of fire), cultivated on family farms in the Piedmont region of Northern Italy and prized for its beautiful pink stippled outer shell, high yield, and creamy interior.
