Add a festive touch to Christmas meals


CHRISTMAS is a hectic time of the year - but harassed cooks have help on hand from Easy Bean.

Our French Cuisinées meal pot – sweet chestnuts in soft green lentils, simmered with seasonal vegetables and flavoured with rosemary and thyme - is a great festive choice for a light lunch or as part of a main meal for a vegetarian guest.

French Cuisinées has won two Gold Great Taste Awards and, like all Easy Bean meals, is hand-prepared and cooked slowly in small batches at the converted barn in the West Country where we are based.

Easy Bean was established in 2007 by the ‘Queen of Beans’ Christina Baskerville. She says: Christmas is a busy time and it’s also a time we all want to enjoy healthy and delicious meals that are easy to prepare and serve.

“That’s where Easy Bean comes in. Our bean-based meals have more fibre than many wholegrains, are virtually fat free and are high in protein. They also taste as good as home-made and can be quickly microwaved and heated in a pan. Healthy, handy and terrifically tasty.”
