Peas and Beans

Ingredient of the Month: July

Fresh peas and beans are at their seasonal best in July, and these versatile vegetables work just as well as the star of the meal, or in a tasty side dish. Packed with sweetness and flavour, in-season peas and beans can be used in pasta, rice dishes, pies or even simple salads. If you have leftovers, try adding them to soups or stews for a pop of colour and some extra nutrients. These vegetables can really transform your dinner table!
