Not Only Delicious, But Also Nutritious Because:
- Cannellini beans are a low calorie but macro and micro-nutrient dense pulse. For instance, ½ cup of cannellini beans contains 7g of protein (twice as much as ½ cup of milk) and 6g of fibre. Both fibre and protein play a significant role in balancing blood sugar levels and managing appetite.
