year of the pulses

I am overdue for a big hooray about the fact that 2016 has been named International Year of Pulses by the United Nations General Assembly. Pulses being delicious, healthy, sustainable foods including beans, lentils, peas, and chickpeas that are a staple of plant-based cooking and eating. Beans, chickpeas and the like could use some positive PR with most eaters I know. Let’s hope the International Year of Pulses helps alleviate some of the grim faces that often accompany the words “are there lentils in this?”

I love all pulses, and they are in heavy rotation in my kitchen as I am always trying to sneak more protein into vegetarian fare. I’m looking forward to working on some new pulse-friendly recipes this yearalready I’ve been so inspired by #lovepulses posts all over the internet. In the meantime, here is a quick round-up of previously posted recipes that I’m keen to revisit in celebration of lovely legumes this year.
