For quicker cooking soak the mix for 2 or 3 hours in double the volume of water to mix. Either rinse the soaked mix and cook in stock for 30 to 40 minutes or, for pilau, cook dry in a little oil for a few minutes before adding stock as required
Add soaked or cooked mix to stews. Try home-milling and adding to breads, savoury muffins & pastry.
Cooking times for dried pulses and mixes will be longer at higher altitudes and when cooking with hard water or older pulses.
Adding bicarbonate of soda during soaking and/or cooking will soften the pulses and reduce the cooking time.
Cooked Pilau Mix can be used immediately or frozen for later use.

Fava Bean Chips cook just like Split Fava Beans, only a little faster as they're smaller pieces of bean. They cost less (cheap as chips?) than the larger Split Fava Beans but are just as tasty, versatile and easy to cook.
Use our Fava Bean Chips to make dal, falafel or hummus - or add a handful or more to soups, stews or curries. The beans get softer and softer the longer they're cooked.View full product details
Britain's original bean, the fava bean is delicious, nutritious and good for the soil. Our Organic Whole Fava Beans are perfect for spicy Egyptian ful medames, truly British baked beans, stews, curries, salads and more.
Our current crop of whole fava beans are the unusually small, round and wonderfully tender Maris Bead variety, bred over 50 years ago at the Plant Breeding Institute on Maris Lane near Cambridge. Whether they're cooked from dry or used canned, we think these are our best ever whole fava.View full product details
