Go big! Our Italian Gigante Beans with Vegetables and Fresh Herbs is delicious and so nourishing.   
Daily Dose
Variety is the spice of life, as well as one of the secrets to satisfaction in the kitchen. If your standby legumes feel a little “bean there, done that,” we’ve got a fantastic recipe for you. Our Gigante Beans with Vegetables and Fresh Herbs feature the legume family’s most bodacious member. Gigante (Greek for “giant”) beans are a staple of Greece’s traditional cuisine. One taste and you’ll see what makes them special: the delicious, creamy center. Like all beans, they’re loaded with fiber, protein, and an array of nutrients. The flavor palette of this dish is straight out of another Mediterranean culinary superstar, Italy. Carrots, celery, onions, garlic, sage and parsley make for a delicious dish that’s bursting with phytonutrients. And it may be the exception that proves the rule: Sometimes “supersize” is a good thing!
