Description

Organic Flageolet Beans are known as the caviar of beans. Flageolet beans are high in complex carbohydrates, protein and fiber and a nutritious and healthy addition to vegetarian diets. The small pale beans have a delicate texture with a light creamy flavor, making them a favorite ingredient in French and Mediterranean cooking. Flageolets beans are most commonly used in soups and stews like as the classic French vegetable and lamb stew,  Cassoulet.
 
How to Cook Organic Flageolet Beans
 
Cover one cup of organic flageolet beans in cold water and bring to a boil. Then turn off the heat and let them soak for 1 hour. Drain and cover them in a pot with at least 2 inches of fresh water.  Add  Sicilian Extra Virgin Olive Oil,  Glace de Poulet Gold Roasted Chicken Stock, and seasonings like bay leaf or a bouquet garni. Bring the beans to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer for 30 minutes or until tender.
 
You can toss flageolet beans with olive oil, rosemary and a bit of fresh lemon juice for a wonderful chilled salad. While flageolet beans are generally paired with lamb in many French recipes, you can also serve them as a side with fish, meat or poultry.
 
*One cup dry yields 2 1/4 cups cooked.

    great to finally find this dried bean

    Posted by Deedeedesserts on May 10th 2016

    I was cooking from Ina Garten recipe, and was so glad to see I could at least find online! No stores carry this dried bean, so I was able to make this recipe with all actual ingredients.

    By Far A Better Bean

    After having eaten these wonderful beans in the South of France I was simply delighted to have the chance to cook them myself. They have a wonderful flavor and texture and truly deserve their grand reputation. I did use the Barefoot Contessa as a guide and they were very tasty!

    An excellent product! The beans cook evenly and arrived very clean sized and well-packed. A perfect alternative to the ubiquitous cannellini.

    Flageolet Beans

    Posted by Kimberly on Feb 26th 2013

    Wonderful texture and mild flavor. The beans appeared consistent in size and age; thus the cooking process was great (No some beans were hard and some were soft...all beans cooked the same). I made one pound. They freeze beautifully. This bean brought back memories of living in France and eating Cassoulet.
