Borlotti beans are a wonderful substitute for vegetarians and vegans to gain high amounts of protein. They are also low GI, this means it takes time for the body to break them down, providing energy to you over longer periods of time.
How to use:
Borlotti beans can help you keep 'fuller' for longer which can keep you from cheekily snacking between meals. You can also prepare and serve borlotti beans much like any other bean. The creamy texture shines alone as a side dish or as the main bean in a casserole or salad. Or, mix it with meat and vegetables for a hearty stew and toss with other beans in a pickled three-bean salad.
