Beans and Pulses
Pulses have long been a staple part of the Italian diet and Napolina's are carefully selected before being rigorously checked to ensure that only the best of the crop are chosen.
This attention to detail means that every soup, salad or sauce you prepare with our pulses will be bursting with flavour.
Many canned beans and pulses are high in protein and are naturally low in fat, sugar and salt. All of the Napolina pulses range count towards your 5-a-day, and are convenient as they are ready to use as they do not require soaking or pre-cooking unlike dried pulses.
Versatile and full of flavour, Butter Beans are perfect for winter warming dishes. Also called 'Lima Beans' they have a delicate, buttery texture which complement a variety of dishes including stews, salads and soups.
Cannellini Beans are a popular pulse used regularly in soups such as the typical Italian dish Minestrone. They have a creamy flavour and are good at absorbing flavours of the dish.
Chick peas are deliciously tasty and can be used in a number of dishes. Use to create salads and stews or add to your favourite pasta dishes as the protein in place of meat.
