Named for their inclusion in U.S. Naval rations in the 19th century, navy beans are also known as haricot beans or Boston beans.
Compared to other beans, navy beans are smaller, with a milder flavor and denser texture, making them the preferred variety for making baked bean dishes, purees, soups and stews.
Navy beans are packed with plant-powered nutrition – just one ¼-cup serving provides 12 grams of filling fiber and 8 grams of satisfying protein; it’s no surprise that these legumes are beloved by vegetarians, dieters and foodies alike.
Soak overnight, rinse and combine 1 cup navy beans with 4 cups water (enough to cover beans completely) in a large pot. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer for 60-90 minutes or until tender.
Once cooked, there are many ways to enjoy navy beans:
Add to your favorite soup, salad or pasta dish
Make a crock of hearty Boston Baked Beans
