MAKING MORE OF BEANS & PEAS... By Patricia Harbottle, Peter Chadwick & Elisabeth Winkler.

This is a deliciously produced book of ideas on how to make vegetables more interesting. It contains information on the nutritional value of vegetables and bean and peas in particular; advice on organic gardening and cost-cutting. The recipes are hugely variable - they're not all vegetarian, but they're all easily laid out and easy to read in clear sections. It contains a wonderful selection of really interesting and imaginative recipes and I would never have imagined that something as mundane as broad beans could be jazzed up to take centre stage on the plate. Vegetables are definitely not a sideline in this book. The pea and bean frittata was simple to make and refreshingly different although don't use rice milk instead of dairy milk - it gave it a bit of an odd taste! And the recipe for taze fasul or green bean stew from Turkey was gorgeous. I added a few extra ingredients and made it more of a main course which worked really well. I even loved the little stories that went with some of the recipes - adding to the feel that I was peeking into someone's family recipe book. Delightful.

5.0 out of 5 stars A very useful book 25 Nov 2009
As someone who has quite a few cook books, it's good to have some that are more unusual. I particularly like the idea of doing more with peas - I have always been ultra-uncreative with them before. Well thought out and like their book on squashes, there's something there for all of us. I'd suggest it for anyone who is interested in eating well and within mainstream cookery.

5.0 out of 5 stars More in this series please 1 Nov 2009
This is a wonderful little book beautifully presented in an autumnal orangey livery. Unusually, it is totally devoted to one vegetable type - green beans and peas. What a great idea. We always end up with a glut of runner beans and usually run out of interesting ideas as to what to do with them quite quickly. There are many unusual recipes here that get the taste buds tingling. I am now eagerly awaiting our next year's crop of beans so I can try out such apatising delights as "green bean and olive salad", "cheesy pea and bean pie" and the very enterprising "broad bean pod puree". Even the good old runner bean chutney has a twist. I'm especially looking forward to trying out the "Taze Fasulya", a very tasty green bean and tomato stew, which I've had in the Middle East, but have never yet managed to successfully recreate. I've picked out some of the vegetarian recipes as that is what interests me, but there is plenty here for meat and fish eaters too.

As well as giving a wide variety of tasty recipes, the authors also give advice on planting, growing, and feeding these crops as well as how to store them for maximum shelf life.
Recipes are presented in a clear and simple way, as are the gardening tips, which will be of benefit to those new to vegetable growing.

This is a must for anyone's cook book shelf (or shelves in my case) and I will certainly be acquiring a copy of its sister book Make More of Squash.
