Inspired by classic British Shepherd's Pie but using split green peas in place of traditional lamb mince, this Farmer's Pea Pie from the Cook & Him makes an equally comforting and satisfying vegan alternative. A splash of soy sauce and a dash of our umami paste give a wonderful depth of flavour. It's deliciously topped off with a rich yeasty root veg mash.
This pesto really shows off our delicious and tender shelled hemp seed, evocative of pine nuts and hemp seed. With our fermented fava bean umami paste taking the place of the usual Parmesan cheese, this happens to be vegan.
This simple pasta dish shows off our fantastic collaboration with Pastificio Carleschi: sedani pasta made slowly and in small batches with UK grown organic fava bean flour and wholegrain Emmer flour.
We set The Cook & Him
a challenge with this one, but the vegan lasagne they created is the perfect marriage for our British-grown Whole Olive Lentils
and fermented Fava Bean Umami Paste
. Packed with flavour, it can be made ahead of time, perfect for feeding a crowd or batch cooking for midweek dinners.
This piquant and fresh salsa verde uses our fermented Fava Umami Paste
in place of the usual preserved anchovies, a vegan alternative that provides a similar savoury depth.
A summer salad with plenty of ooomph provided by the fabulous depth of the Fava Umami Paste
used for the dressing. This is a great dish to prepare ahead; unlike most salads it gets better after a few hours.
