I’ve been on a little bit of a cannellini bean kick lately. I love how these simple white beans have a uniquely creamy texture and their mild flavor makes them really versatle. Cannellini beans, also known as white kidney beans, are a staple in Italian cuisine but they can also be used in a pretty wide range of dishes and cuisines. Did I mention they’re an inexpensive pantry staple? Keep these beans on hand!

What Do Cannellini Beans Taste Like?

Cannellini beans have a subtle, slightly nutty flavor and a smooth, creamy texture. They are softer than most other beans, which makes them unique. If you can’t find cannellini beans, you can substitute with great northern beans or navy beans, which have similar textures and flavors.
