Recipes with mangetout

Beans are justifiably incredibly popular vegetables in the kitchen with a host of uses. That also applies to mangetout. For example, bringing flavour and crunch to a salmon dish. Or as a wonderful delicacy in a puff pastry case filled with mangetout, shiitake and a creamy sauce. And if you need a splash of summer on the table, serve a crisp, mangetout salad.


Trim both ends from the pods and rinse them. Mangetout can be cooked, steamed or stir-fried. Keep the cooking time brief - no more than 5 minutes - to retain the flavour and texture.

Where do mangetout come from?

EAT ME sources its mangetout from several countries, such as Guatemala, Peru, Kenya, Egypt and Zimbabwe. The plant takes about 3 months before the pods are big enough to harvest. Mangetout grow on vines, which are attached to canes to guide them in the right direction. This also stops the vegetables coming into contact with the soil and minimises the risk of pests and diseases infecting the plants.
