Recipe Ideas

If you've been to the shop you'll know we like to put recipes ideas up on our chalkboard, as a bit of inspiration of what to do with some of our ingredients.

Easy Fava Dip (just like hummus!)

100g spilt fava beans - boiled for 30-40 mins until soft

Use a food processor or potato masher to combine with Garlic Infused Rapeseed Oil, salt, pepper, smoked paprika and a little water to loosen if needed. Keep tasting to check seasoning and cosistency is to your liking

Red Lentil Daal

Fry onions & garlic in oil until soft

Add turmeric, ground cumin, ground coriander and mustard seeds (1 tsp of each) and fry for a further couple of minutes

Add red lentils and coat with the oil & spices

Add water or stock and coconut milk and simmer for roughly 20 minutes, or until the lentils are cooked but not mushy

Summer Minestrone Soup

Fry spring onions, garlic, celery, carrot (diced) and dried herbs such as herbes de provence or oregano in a little rapeseed oil until softening

Add other veggies like green & yellow courgette, peppers and fresh tomatoes and cook for a further minute or so

Add a good quality stock cube like the Kallo organic veggie or mushroom stock cubes, and boiling water from the kettle

Add orzo (a type of pasta that looks like rice) and simmer for 10 mins or until the pasta is cooked
