Edgell Giveaway

Beans, beans, good for your heart. The more you eat, the more you... *ahem*.. Well, I don't really agree with the next part... Legumes are a fantastic source of fibre and protein, and are just the food group that most of us need to eat more of :) There are so many delicious and tasty dishes to make using beans and lentils.

Thanks to the good people at Edgell, I had the pleasure of trying some of their new products...

The individual portion tubs come like this with a separate sachet in the box... A handy snack pack for one. The 3 flavours available are: 'Balasmic Vingear', 'Red Wine Vinaigrette & Herbs' and 'Honey & Wholegrain Mustard'.

I tried the '3 Beans and Corn with a Balsamic Vinegar Sachet' to make a quick, delicious and healthy dip to serve with warm bread - yum :)

Creamy bean dip with balsamic and basil
1 x Edgell '3 Beans and Corn with a Balsamic Vinegar Sachet'
1 tsp extra virgin olive oil
salt and freshly ground pepper to taste
finely chopped fresh basil

1. Open the plastic tub and microwave for 20 seconds. Note - there is no need to drain the beans and corn.
2. Tip the bean and corn mix into a blender/small food processor with about half of the sachet's dressing, extra virgin olive oil and a little salt and pepper. Pulse until smooth.
2. Taste and adjust the seasoning as required.
3. Top with fresh basil and serve with bread, crackers or even sliced vegetables!

  1. wow, what a great prize. i'd love to try these healthy beans. thanks for sharing the giveaway :-)

  2. My version of that song goes like this : "Beans, beans, the musical fruit, the more you eat, the more you toot!" Ha ha ha ha...ok, sorry, I'm very easily amused.

    Would be great to win that cool looking picnic basket (and the beans) :)

  3. I missed the deadline! But these little kits look great for those of us who take our lunches to work. Edgell beans have 'bean' a staple part of my little home made salad for many years now, the protein and fibre add the substance you need in a salad, an otherwise light lunch, to ward off and that afternoon hungry feeling if you don't have enough in your salad.
