Clearspring Quick Cook Grains & Pulses Organic

£2.69

This combination of organic grains and pulses is colourful, versatile and wholesome. Emmer wheat or Farro is an ancient form of modern wheat and is a type of spelt. With its sweet nutty chewiness the grains remain slightly al dente when cooked. Gourmets applaud Farro for its nutritional characteristics; they adore the hearty, flavourful taste. KAMUT® khorasan wheat complements its flavour, barley provides texture while peas and lentils add protein and iron to the mix.  250g.

Clearspring Quick Cook Millet Peas & Lentils Organic
£2.69

Clearspring Quick Cook Millet Peas & Lentils Organic

£2.69

Millet is mildly sweet, nutty and a delicious accompaniment to peas and lentils. Tiny in size and round in shape, these ancient seeds are an interesting alternative to our more common grains but it is a staple food for a third of the world’s population.  Peas on the other hand used to be a staple food in the middle ages. By the 17th and 18th centuries, it had become popular to eat peas "green", that is, while they are immature and right after they are picked. This was especially true in France and England, where the eating of green peas was said to be "both a fashion and a madness".  Finally Millet is a good source of vitamin B6, while peas and lentils not only add extra protein but are also a valuable source of iron.  250g.

Pasta and Bean Soup

This is the best-known peasant dish in Italy. Every region has a version, but the Veneti, Trentini and Tirolesi have elevated it to a dish smart enough for posh restaurant menus. For me, it is the benchmark of a good chef-because it is so simple, it must be perfect.

Serves 6

300g fresh borlotti beans, or 200g dried beans soaked in cold water overnight and drained
6 tbsp olive oil
1 onion, finely chopped
2 basil leaves
1 rosemary sprig
1 litre chicken or vegetable stock 
1 red chilli, chopped (optional)
1 tbsp tomato puree
Salt and pepper
150g tubetti pasta (little tubes)
4 tbsp extra virgin olive oil to serve

Put the beans into a heatproof earthenware pot or large pan and cover with cold water. Bring to the boil and cook gently, allowing one hour if using fresh beans, 1 1/2-2 hours if using dried. Don't salt the water or the skins will remain tough. When soft, drain and puree half of the beans in a blender or food processor, then mix together with the whole beans.

Heat the olive oil in a saucepan, add the onion and fry until softened. Add the basil, rosemary, stock, chilli if using, tomato puree, beans and salt and pepper to taste. Bring to the boil, then add the pasta and cook for 7-8 minutes or until the pasta is al dente.

Leave to stand for 30 minutes before serving to allow the flavours to mingle. Reheat if you like, but in Italy soups are more often served warm rather than hot, even cold in summer. Top each portion with a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil.
