These nutritional powerhouses also contain small amounts of omega-3 fats and the shiny black coating contains at least eight different flavonoids. They're ideal for making bean burgers as well as for adding to stews, curries and chilli.

Pizza GF SCD

The haricot beans in this pizza's base give it a lovely almost scone-like texture and although it could never ever be compared to a real pizza, it's a perfect alternative to the real thing for followers of the Specific Carbohydrate Diet.

Courgette and Pea Soup GF SCD

This deep green wholesome and very tasty soup can be created in minutes. Since I adore peas, I make sure we buy a pack of frozen peas every week to avoid any calamity that would arise if we actually ran out. We cook them every day, they are a fantastic source of plant protein. This soup recipe is also a perfect way to use up the odd courgettes that have been sadly neglected in the fridge. We tend to over stock courgettes and since I purposefully avoid throwing anything away, this soup has become a firm favourite.
