You can make a vegan, gluten free ricotta substitute with this, lemon juice and canola oil. Mix up the ingredients and then layer them between strips of Tinkyada lasagna. Bake for awhile in some tomato sauce, and you have fabulous vegan, gluten-free lasagna.
(If you want the recipe, e-mail me at the address above. I'd publish it here, but it then becomes property of Amazon, and it's actually going into my cookbook.)
Great Northern beans combine beautifully with pinto beans for a great soup, either as a mixed bean soup or as the protein in a rich and hearty vegetable soup....or just for a big bowl of beans for a "beans and greens" meal. We also sometimes open and drain a can and use it to top a big main course salad, along with dried cranberries and feta cheese.
The fact that they are salt free in the can means you don't have to drain and rinse them several times like you do brands of canned beans that contain salt. The little bit of kombu (seaweed) that is in the cooked beans adds a bit of iodine to your diet which can be helpful if you use pure sea salt like we do - and even more so if you don't use any salt at all.
We use several Eden organic products because of their consistent quality and BPA free can linings and have been looking for the Great Northern beans at a decent price for many months. I was delighted to find them now on Amazon. I hope they continue to be available here.
It even says right on their website: "They are washed, soaked overnight, and thoroughly cooked with a bit of kombu sea vegetable. You don't taste the kombu, but its natural glutamic acid softens and enhances the flavor of beans."
"Enhances the flavor of the beans" - why are there flavor enhancers on Organic Beans from a company also advertising a BPA free lining in their cans? I for one, was blow away by the discovery on MSG on such a seemingly extremely healthy product.
The beans are organic and they put some kombu in to add trace minerals. Because of this I don't discard the liquid; if the beans are going in a soup or other liquidy dish, then everything in the can is going in. Hope this helps.

For $24 a case in 2014, they were good, but a year later at $37 for a case of 12, they are a total rip-off!
Who's proifiteering here -- is it Amazon or Eden Organics?
I never remember to put the beans to soak in time and find having the no salt added ones canned a great help. Simply rinse and add to my broth and I have instant soup!Published on January 30, 2013 by Laine H. Massey
These are great tasting beans and are very good either as a side alone or used in soups or other dishes.Published on January 17, 2013 by Keith B. Steenbergen
