Recipe Story

The small, white navy bean, also called pea bean, cannellini or haricot, is popular in France, and traditionally the main bean of Anglo-America, used in such dishes as Boston baked beans. Similar to other beans, the white bean is high in starch, protein and dietary fiber and an excellent source of iron, potassium, selenium, molybdenum, thiamine, vitamin B6, and folic acid.
