Cannellini beans have a smooth texture and a mild, elusive nutty flavour. They are similar in appearance to kidney beans, only they are white rather than red. The cannellini bean is considered a traditional Italian legume, especially popular in central and southern Italy. One of the most popular uses is for minestrone soup, though it works well in a variety of soups, stews, and casseroles, and is a common choice for baked beans. Substitute for other white beans in recipes such as great northern or navy beans.
