Unreliable Quality

I ignored the reviews and bought these beans last week, they were beans from Kenya and they were tender and delicious. Foolishly I did the same this week, this time the beans were from Egypt and they were truly disgusting, mushy and stringy and most of them were left on the plate uneaten. I won't be buying them again from Ocado when I cannot rely on the quality. Please can we have either better back of pack information or more consistency in the quality.

Not worth buying

Rating: 1 star out of 5


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!

Hot Chicken and Pancetta Salad

Hot Chicken and Pancetta Salad

This salad is quick to make and ideal for a family supper. Make extra dressing and keep it in the fridge in a screw topped jar for emergencies. This is a recipe the whole family can join in together with and cut down on the prep time. Pancetta is Italian smoked bacon, it gives off a lot of fat so don't add any oil to the wok or frying pan, just throw the pancetta in and drain it afterwards.
