The green team hits our shelves...

Introducing our Best of British trio...the runner bean, the broad bean and the pea. Not sure what to do with yours? More Sparks recipe ideas to follow!

Facts about their health benefits:

Broad beans are an excellent vegetable source of protein and fibre. This may be a winning combination for weight loss. ... Broad beans are also rich in both folate and B vitamins, which we need for nerve and blood cell development, cognitive function and energy.

Runner beans, string beans, or snap beans are a rich source of vitamins A, C, and K, and of folic acid and fiber. They have similar nutritional benefits to snap peas and okra.

Green peas are rich in polyphenol antioxidants, which are likely responsible for many of their health benefits. Green peas are fairly low in calories and contain several vitamins, minerals and antioxidants. They're also high in fiber and protein.
