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.
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).
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.
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!
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.
