Borlotti and Porcini Pasta Sauce
A quick and tasty sauce that works really beautifully with pasta.  If you like rich, hearty flavours, this one's for you.  Porcini and tomato puree blend together to give a sweet, sharp, umami taste.  

Cavolo nero provides a fantastic array of nutrients and borlotti beans are loaded with fibre to keep your inner-bugs happy.  We top this off with some garlic and red onion to boost the phytonutrients for a nutritious and delicious sauce.

Cassoulet
The Southern-French classic Cassoulet gets a radical makeover in this recipe.  Loaded with flavour, it's a rich, hearty dish that is beautiful with some good bread.  Quick to prepare, it's a new family-favourite.

The original recipe is packed with meat and fat and is cooked slowly in a special pot.  This  version uses plant-based sausages.  Alternatively, for those wanting a whole-foods plant-based meal, omit the sausages and double up the beans.

Sweet Paprika Beans
A warming, filling pulse-rich main meal with quinoa, this has become a family favourite in our household.

With pulses (beans, lentils etc.,) being one of the healthiest, cheapest foods on earth, it's great to cook a dish that can be prepared in 10 minutes and then left to gently simmer for half an hour before quickly stirring in the quinoa before eating.  To make it even quicker you could use frozen bell peppers that have already been chopped up.
