Bold Beans: recipes to get your pulse racing (Hardcover)
Available for Pre-Order (Publication Dates Subject to Change)
A cookbook celebrating the brilliant versatility of beans, with 80 nutritious, delicious recipes
For too long in the UK beans were thought of as dreary hippy fodder, but they’ve undergone a radical image makeover. At long last they are being recognized for their brilliant versatility as well as for being truly delicious and nutritious – something that has been known in Europe for years. One of the healthiest and most sustainable of foods, they help with meat reduction by providing a cheap source of plant protein and at the same time aid soil health, one of the most pressing issues in farming today.
The book will contain c.80 recipes divided into the following chapters:
• Beans on Toast
• Bean Snacks and Share Plates
• Hearty Salads
• Bean Bowls
• Soup Beans
• Bean Feasts
The majority will be written by the Bold Bean team, but in keeping with their community-driven growth they plan to include at least 20 recipes from guest writers, the influencers who’ve been their greatest supporters so far – including Ben Lebus of MOB and Melissa Hemsley. Appealing to vegans, vegetarians and flexitarians, they are recipes offering guaranteed heartiness, protein and satisfaction – with reduced carbs too, if that’s your thing.
