Recipes By Bryony Halsted
My illustration is aimed at encouraging people to use dry beans in recipes, by presenting the easy method of cooking them. I love the variety of dry beans available, so I've illustrated a few of the different shapes colours and sizes (from adzuki to black eyed peas, from pinto beans to black beans). As many middle eastern recipes use pulses in the cooking I have decorated the page with appropriate patterns and warm terracotta colours.
A family favourite recipe I grew up with, which incorporates all those child-favourite flavours such as grated cheese and some peanut butter, coated in yummy crispy breadcrumbs! (Things to endear them to if they're 'unsure' about those lentils!) A hearty, healthy, veggie alternative to sausages.
