I did not know that Cannellini Beans are just white kidney beans.
Do you know how many HOURS I have spent squinting at shelves in grocery stores galore, looking for them?
20 years worth! How ever many hours that is!
Yes. I’m a little mad about the whole thing.
I never went without them though because in my brilliance I decided to just use white kidney beans. Ha!
Here is my favourite WHITE KIDNEY BEAN recipe.
Broccoli, Tuna, Bean Salad
2 cans of tuna, packed in olive oil. Please splurge on the good stuff here.
2 bunches of broccoli, steamed and cut into small pieces
1 can of white kidney beans, drained
1 lemon. Well, the zest and the juice to your taste.
1 bunch of flat leaf parsley, minced
capers, to taste.
red chili flakes, to taste
salt and pepper, to taste.
Place all ingredients , including the oil from the tuna, in a bowl. Season to taste. Eat and enjoy. This is also most excellent atop pasta!
