BEANS are not every Englishman’s first choice of food, but perhaps it is time they were given a little bit more street cred. Peas, beans and lentils, collectively known as pulses, come in dozens of varieties with a host of flavours and textures. Pulses form an important source of protein and iron for the human diet.

Easy peasy supper

Okay, okay, you know we’re all for proper cooking at home, but for those nights when you’re just too tired to get chopping, there’s a definite place for these new, chilled Easy Bean meals. They’re as close to home-cooked as you’ll get in a tub and are locally made to boot. The range includes veggie and meaty dishes such as the Moroccan tagine (chickpea, aubergine and apricot) and the Spanish puchero (butter beans with chorizo sausage). Serve with flat bread or a pile of rice and go put your feet up.
