The Instacart guide to cranberry beans
About cranberry beans
The cranberry bean goes by many names including Roman bean, Romano bean, Borlotti bean, Rosecoco bean, Saluggia bean, and speckled sugar bean. These thin-skinned beans have a velvety texture and nutty flavor. They lend themselves especially well to broth, making a thick and flavorful soup. Cranberry beans are a popular choice for refried beans as well because they're easy to blend and satisfyingly smooth when well-cooked.
When fresh, cranberry beans are white with bold pink markings. These pink marks turn red when the beans are dried, giving them a distinctive appearance. These red markings give the cranberry bean its name, as it is in no way related to the cranberry fruit. Cooked cranberry beans, however, lose their coloring and become rusty brown all over.
Cranberry beans are low in fat and high in protein, carbohydrates, and fiber. One cup of cooked cranberry beans has 16.5 grams of protein, which is higher than most other beans, with the exception of soybeans and lentils. Cranberry beans also provide a good source of iron, copper, thiamin, and folate.
