Expert Tips

  • Cannellini beans are large white Italian kidney beans. They have a softer texture and milder flavor than dark red kidney beans. Popular in Tuscany, cannellini beans are used in warm salads and vegetable soups.
  • In this soup, Great Northern beans can be used in place of the cannellini beans.
  • This hearty soup is a meal in itself. Complete the menu with soft breadsticks and lemon sorbet.
