About this deal

SEASONAL BEANS Growing drying beans from New World species is dirfficult to do in the UK, certainly at any kind of scale. Each year we have very limited quantities of some special rare beans from a handful of growers. This year we'll probably only have these borlotti. Heavy metals, such as mercury, lead, and cadmium, are dense metals that are toxic at low concentrations ( 17). If you have cooked fava beans that are plain, those can last in the fridge a couple more days. Be sure the fava beans are fully cooled before storing in the fridge. And as far as texture and flavor, favas are one of the tastiest, meaty bean varieties around--creamy, buttery texture and a lovely, nutty flavor.

Eye of Goat (Ojo de Cabra) originated in Mesoamerica, probably Mexico or the southern US. They’re a variety of Phaseolus vulgaris, the same incredibly diverse family of beans from the Americas that includes borlotti, cannellini and haricots. Along with falafel and koshari, foul mudammas--also known as ful medames--is the daily grub of the Egyptian people. A humble but tasty vegan meal made of fava beans and served for late breakfast, lunch or even dinner.Eating kidney beans may also help reduce risk factors for heart disease, such as high blood pressure. In Greece large white beans like ours are called Gigantes - giants, ours aren't quite as big and they're not Greek so we've named them after the famous Welsh giant Gogmagog (probably more correctly Gawr Madoc (Madoc the Great), Albion's last giant. We're a long way from Wales, but we do have the Gog Magog hills just down the road in Cambridgshire. Heat the oil and half the butter in a large, heavy-based pan and add the spring onions and garlic. Cook gently until soft, about 5 minutes, then stir in the pearl barley. A small study from 2015 of 14 adults with overweight or obesity found that eating 5 cups (910 grams) of navy beans per week for 4 weeks reduced waist circumference and total and LDL cholesterol levels in males compared to baseline ( 36). Furthermore, plant-based diets have been shown to reduce the risk of heart disease, type 2 diabetes, and metabolic syndrome and may also improve brain function ( 8, 9, 10).

Salt (sodium) is an essential nutrient that helps your body regulate blood volume and blood pressure ( 19). The flavor makers in this recipe are decidedly Mediterranean. We start with a pinch of fragrant ground cumin, which adds great depth and aids with digestion. These Good Mother Stallard beans are doubly rare: difficult to grow in the UK and globally scarce, Edward Lea at Green Acres Farm in Shropshire has done a fantastic job raising a small crop for harvest. Pour the spicy sauce over the fava beans and stir. Add a generous drizzle of extra virgin olive oil (I used Early Harvest Greek extra virgin olive oil) Aquadulce’ is a notably hardy cultivarfor November sowing, but broad beans, unlike some crops, don’t need winter cold to ensure they flower(this is known asvernalisation), so you can sow any leftover ‘Aquadulce’ in spring, too.


A few large observational studies have found that eating peanuts is associated with a lower risk of death from many causes, including heart disease, stroke, cancer, and diabetes ( 38). Dietary isoflavone consumption from soy may also help reduce heart disease risk in women ( 2 9). Summary Beans contain compounds with anti-inflammatory and lipid-lowering properties, meaning they help reduce inflammation and levels of fats in the blood, respectively. They also support a diverse and healthy gut microbiome ( 13). Canned beans are also precooked, and you don’t need to soak them overnight like dried beans. This majorly reduces the time it takes to prepare them. Summary One small study of eight healthy adults found that eating 3/4 cup (133 grams) of red kidney beans led to significantly lower blood pressure 2 hours after consumption compared with the same amount of rice. It’s important to note that other factors may affect blood pressure, so significant improvements are not guaranteed ( 21).
