Bold Beans: beautiful, brilliant and exciting recipes (Amelia Christie-Miller)


For too long in the UK (and elsewhere) 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, beans 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.

With contributions from the Bold Bean team, and -- in keeping with their community-driven growth -- guest writers like Hugh Fearnley-Whittingsall and Anna Jones. Appealing to vegans, vegetarians and flexitarians, they are recipes offering guaranteed heartiness, protein and satisfaction – with reduced carbs too, if that’s your thing.
