The beans from Kenya are amazing - these others are really just disgusting!

Rating: 1 star out of 5

Fat, dirty, stringy and smelly!

Awful awful 'beans', smelled of stale dog and were damp and fishy. Fat as a baby's arm and like eating rancid hawser. Never again!

What has happened?

We regularly eat these beans but recently they have not been coming from Kenya and are anything but fine. They really shouldn't stock them if they can't get FINE beans. These were fat, chewy and very unpleasant. Threw them away.

Despite the preview good reviews...

... these have to be the fattest FINE green beans we have ever seen! Also they were stale and stringy so we ended up having to throw them away in the recycling bin. So no veggies with our dinner and a complete waste of our money, and a waste of the energy it took us to cook them... We won't be buying them again. We will instead stick with the far more reliable FROZEN green beans, which constantly prove to be far nicer too ... thumbs down Waitrose

Cheat... You can buy ready-mixed paella spices. Add with the rice in place of the saffron, cayenne, and paprika. Cook's Notes It's traditional in Spain to mix meat and fish. If you're not a fan, choose one to cook with and increase the quantities.
