Borlotti beans - a plant protein powerhouse

Tuesday, February 21, 2017. Author Martin Cheifetz

Borlotti beans are medium sized, oval shaped, have a mixed red and tan color, a creamy texture, and taste reminiscent of chestnuts.  Borlotti’s attractive red speckles fade during cooking, but they offer a very well balanced nutritional profile, an enjoyable flavor, and myriad cooking options.  

This week’s delicious recipe, Borlotti Bean and Chili Tacos is a perfect example of how this versatile, healthful food can be easily incorporated into your diet to boost protein and fiber intake.
