Kidney beans are a great addition to salads, sausage stews, curries, Mexican chilli and vegetarian tacos as well as making a good base for veggie burgers and dips.
The slow cooker is a great way to make chilli. This beefy chilli is packed with beans, veggies and spices. Serve on its own, and use leftovers to top jacket potatoes.
This chilli is so easy to make. You can pretty much throw whatever vegetables you have into the pot.
Kidney beans simmered with onion, pepper, garlic, tomato purée and rice. A perfect one-pan meal. Leftovers are tasty wrapped in a tortilla, too.
This is a great base recipe, and meat eaters will never guess it's vegetarian!
This colourful summer salad is delicious and good for you, too.
This is the best chilli recipe I know! You can modify the spice level to suit your own family's taste. Don't be alarmed by the amount of sauce - it should reduce down with cooking. You can also make this in a slow cooker.
Make a weeknight supper special - serve this hearty soup with crusty bread and salad.
Serve with Indian naan bread or flatbread (chapatti).
This is an Iranian (Persian) dish and i found the recipe in an old cookbook. It says there are Vegetarian versions so if anyone has one, please let me know!
Really healthy vegetable burgers made with kidney beans, vegetables, garlic and ginger. My OH thinks they're great and that they are nicer than the meaty variety.
