Quindi quelle non sono le taccole?


Stefano loves these fagioli! I haven't seen them at our markets, but will keep an eye out. I agree, the photo of the bottom of your food mill is fantastic.

Ciao Baol. Le taccole sono un tipo di pisello. Vengono anche chiamate piselli mangiatutto e qui si chiamano snow peas.

Ciao Cara. This is another vegetable that I have started to see in recent years, so it is possible that its cultivation will expand. If you know some farmers, maybe you can ask them. I have seen seeds for these beans in catalogs. I am glad you also like the photo.


Looks good. I've never tasted these beans before. I like the idea that it's a flat bean. Yum!


I was always looking for the brief season of piattoni(but my all-time favourites were taccole). My mother prepared them exactly like this. I saw similar specimen being sold under the name of 'runner beans' in the UK, although they are usually a bit tougher.


Oh, I love romano beans! I discovered them a few seasons ago at our farmers' market. I hope I see them again this year, and if I do I'm going to try them briciole style. :-)


I've never had this type of beans, but they sound very tasty prepared this way!

Simona Carini

Ciao Paz. I think you may be able to find them at one of the farmers' market in your corner of the world.

Ciao Caffettiera. I have actually never had taccole in Italy, only here. According to the Cook's Thesaurus, runner beans is another way of referring to romano beans. In terms of being tough, the ones I bought were stringless and of nice texture. I can't wait to get more ;)

Ciao Lisa. That is good to know that you can find them at least in some parts of the Midwest. Let me know if you try the recipe.

Hi Kalyn. Maybe you can try growing them in your beautiful garden next year :)

German Mama

I love beans. I don't think I ever had this kind but the recipe sounds great.

Simona Carini

Hi German Mama. I hope you can find them: they are really tasty.


Ciao Simona! Stavo cercando una foto dei piattoni bianchi e verdi per pubblicare una mia ricetta e sono incappata nella tua e poiché è proprio quella che avrei voluto fare io quest'estate se non fossi stata presa da pigrizia e strilla di mia figlia, volevo chiederti se posso usarla e nella didascalia della foto scriverei: Foto by Simona, http://briciole.typepad.com oppure altra cosa che suggerisci tu. Grazie per l'attenzione e complimenti per il blog!

Simona Carini

Grazie Monica. Attendo di leggere il tuo post. E intanto ricambio i complimenti per il blog.
