in dried form (perfect for when times are hard). Pulses can be cooked from dry, made into flour and some can be sprouted (i.e bean sprouts). They make a filling and satisfying addition to: curries, soups, stews, chilli dishes, pie fillings, burgers, salads
and cous cous

Mushrooms add flavour and texture to a dish. They are soft and yet have something to chew on. Mushrooms are quite meaty in flavour, particularly when dried. We sell dried mushrooms which re-hydrate fully in water, and mushrooms in jars. Available mushrooms: Shiitake

Seaweed can be added to soups, stir fries and stews. It is often chopped up and added to flour for pasta, noodles and bread. Seaweed is used in sushi (where Nori strips are wrapped around rice and other ingredients to make bite sized food).
Soya is particularly useful for vegetarians, as it is very versatile and high in protein. This means that it can be used to create things like soy mince and soya chunks.
The savoury fruit. Sun dried tomatoes are the perfect topping for salads, pasta, pizza or risotto. They have a rich concentrated tomato flavour. We sell dry tomatoes (non-jarred) and organic tomato puree at great value.
