Great Northern Beans
Great Northern Beans
Non-GMO, Product of Canada
The great northern beans are a small, nutritious, and flavorful variety of the common bean. Great northern beans are white or creamy.
Great northern beans, having a mild taste and a soft texture, are used as an ingredient in many dishes. The beans are a preferred among vegetarians, as they are often a simple method to change a few of the nutrients that may otherwise be lost.
Some choose to include them in homemade bread dishes, particularly cornbread; this gives the bread a mildly sweet taste while adding a lot of moisture and density. The beans can likewise be whipped or combined to make a mouthwatering dip for crackers or toasted bread.
Great in soups and stews, they hold their shape better than Navy beans, take on the flavors of the foods they’re cooked with, and are commonly used in French cassoulets.
Their flesh is less creamy, and takes on the flavor of whatever they're cooked with (similar to tofu). This versatile and mild-flavored bean is perfect for bean dips, hearty stews, and mixed bean salads.

I bought these beans multiple times and I was always very happy with the product. Great beans for soup, very tasty and good quality. I will definitely buy it again.
Absolutely amazed at shipping speed. And some of the best beans I have purchased was at this store.
The beans are really great quality! I love the taste and texture and find them to be so versatile. I make dips, curries, stews, salads and my favourite is adding them to roasted fresh tomatoes with garlic, olive oil and fresh basil or other herbs at the end. Top with cheese or on top of rice or other grain. I’ve sprouted them a couple times as well. Super fast great service! I will definitely be ordering again!
Much better than store bought, keep up the great work I certainly appreciate it!
These are one of the few beans I can eat that do not give me an upset stomach or any gas/bloating at all. So glad they are readily available and grown in Canada as I do eat a lot of them. And as the write up says, they are great in soups, dips etc. or on their own. I particularly love them in the N. Italian style dish with tuna, olive oil and apple cider vinegar. Yum!
