Everyone loves beans, they’re very nutritious, delicious, and highly sustainable. Using very little water with a high yield they are one of the most widely available and produced sustainable foods we have. We have a wide variety for sale at the little green larder so it’s a great place to start.
Pasta is one of the most versatile foods ever made. This ancient food can be transformed into incredible dishes and are fantastic for long days for its slow energy release here at our shop we sell all sorts of pasta so if you're looking for the highest quality available you can count on us to provide.
One of the most important ingredients for many different cultures is rice, there are loads of different types from basmati to Arborio to sushi rice. Famed for its high energy content and versatility. We have a vision of rice being grown in fields full of water but this isn’t used for growing the rice it’s a means of keeping pests and bacteria away. It’s very easy to cook and very easy to store for long periods of time.
Lentils are delicious, very high in protein and extremely versatile, like beans they don’t need a lot of water to grow and have a very high yield and can be used in many dishes from curries to soups and have been used in many different recipes from many different food cultures. At the little green larder, we approve of lentils.
