A-Z Challenge- Kidney Bean

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!
