Autumn soup no. 2: Creamy white bean and bacon soup

Added on September 27th, 2014
Found in Pulses, Pulses recipes, Recipes, Starter - recipes, Tinned food, Wholefood - recipes, Wholefoods

It can sometimes be hard to find a bean ‘n bacon soup that isn’t tomatoe-y. This one allows the wonderfully creamy flavour of the beans to shine through. It’s just the thing for a dreary, misty, autumnal day.


340g smoked bacon, chopped
1 tbsp olive oil
1 knob butter
1 onion, diced
2 carrots, diced
2 stalks of celery, diced
2 cloves garlic, crushed
400g tin white beans (or equivalent dried and cooked)
1 ltr chicken stock
Salt, pepper and dried thyme to taste

Parsley and lemon juice to garnish

Added on October 26th, 2013
Found in Christmas, Nut recipes, Recipes, recipes

One way to make a cake special is to add your own marzipan. Making your own organic marzipan is easy and fun and the end-product tastes just great. The only problem is in it lasting long enough to get onto the cake for which it was intended!


  • 175g organic caster sugar - organic caster sugar has a golden colour that adds to the appeal of the marzipan.
  • 280g icing sugar , sifted, plus extra for kneading and rolling out.
  • 450g organic ground almonds - don’t forget that ground almonds are a really useful ingredient in gluten-free cooking.
  • seeds scraped from 1 vanilla pod (or a couple of drops of vanilla extract).
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 0.5 tsp lemon juice

Vegetable biryani

Added on October 23rd, 2012
Found in Mains - recipes, Rice recipes

As with many vegetable curries, this is a good recipe for using all the left-over veg in the cupboard – the bits that you don’t really have enough of to make a meal. Using lots of veg bits and rice makes this a very economical end-of-the-week dish, and would also suit students.

As a variation, you could add lentils to the dish.


  • Mug of organic brown basmati rice
  • 750 – 1kg of mixed vegetables (e.g., onion, carrot, potato, peas, peppers, sweetcorn)
  • 1 tbsp cooking oil
  • 1 tsp mustard seed
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp turmeric
  • 1 tsp red chilli powder
  • 1 tsp allspice
  • 2 tsp ground coriander and cumin seed
  • 1 tsp fresh ground garlic
  • 1 tsp fresh ground ginger
  • 1 tsp fresh ground green chillies
  • Finely chopped coriander

This is easy to make if you have a food processor, but really tricky by hand. By making your own, you can ring the changes – more lemon sometimes, or add garlic. A little paprika, a couple of tablespoons of ketchup ,and you have a Thousand Island dressing!

Found in Organic, Pulses recipes

Sometimes, you want a substantial salad – and traditional salad crops just aren’t filling enough. This is where the bean salad comes into play. Bean salads are a great way to eat beans – a rich source of soluble fibre, low in fat and cholesterol and packed with vitamins and protein.

It is possible to make a really tasty bean salad in about two minutes.


  • Can of mixed beans (here we are using Biona mixed organic beans)
  • Lemon juice (you can use fresh lemon juice and grate some zest, but having a jar of lemon juice in the fridge is really handy)
  • Clove of garlic, freshly chopped
  • Olive oil
  • 2 spring onions, chopped into rings
  • Fresh parsley
  • Sea salt to taste
