Gigandes are an excellent source of complex carbohydrates, protein, fiber, antioxidants and a good source of iron. Gigande Beans (Giant White Beans) hold their shape well with a tender, yet meaty texture and have a subtle, sweet taste that absorbs surrounding flavors well. Great for hearty soups or pairing with poultry, seafood, and hearty greens like kale or spinach.
