Spring legume recipes
Legumes are low in fat and a great source of protein, fibre, vitamins and minerals. Legumes are also low GI which means they will keep you feeling fuller for longer, and best of all they are cheap to buy and a tasty meat-free protein alternative.
3 beans to keep in your pantry
1. Cannellini beans can be bought either dried or in a can. They have a fluffy texture and a slightly nutty, mild flavour and work well in soups, stews and even dips. Try our Cannellini bean, cumin and yoghurt dip >
2. Kidney beans are a good source of fibre and protein, like most other beans and legumes. Check out our recipe for Quick chilli con carne >
3. Black beans have a rich earthy flavour and are a good source of protein and fibre making them an ideal pantry item to add to soups, patties, salsas and even brownies.
