Ways to use in recipes

Beans are a fantastic ingredient for making an array of recipes such as burgers, chilli con carnes, posh beans on toast, stews, hotpots, curries and much much more. If you struggle to look past the obvious uses for beans, why not try our black bean burgers here - delicious all year round and great on the barbecue!

Lentils and chickpeas are great for making Indian style cuisine such as Lentil Dahl and Chana Masala. They provide a wealth of protein to a vegan diet which can often lack in protein sources. 

Lentils are also great at replacing meat in products in the likes of Spaghetti Bolognese. They add a meaty substance to a vegetarian version of the popular Italian dish.

Chickpeas are extremely versatile - roast with spices and flavours of choice for a healthy snack, blend with tahini, garlic, lemon and olive oil for a delightful zingy hummus or add to curries for added protein along with sweet potato, cauliflower and spinach for a delicious midweek treat!

Butter beans are great in stews and hearty winter meals. They have a soft texture that holds well in the heat of a slow cooker for a warming meal to come home to at the end of the day. Combine with your favourite vegetables and vegetable stock with a side of crunchy toasted sourdough for a meal the whole family will love.

Butter beans and black beans are also popular ingredients in baking. They provide great texture and softness to treats such as chocolate brownies! 

The possibilities with lentils, beans and pulses are endless. Train yourself to think outside the box and experiment with new and exciting ingredients and surprise yourself with what you can create. 

How to prepare dry beans and pulses

Most of our dried beans will cook a lot faster if they have been soaked previously before adding to recipes. Simply place in a bowl of water and leave overnight - all it takes is a little time and forward planning and then the world is your oyster!
