For those of you looking for more resources on pulses, including recipes, we thought we'd share this recent publication with you, out now.
An inspiring do-it-yourself guide to growing and eating pulses—a versatile, nutritious and highly sustainable crop that includes beans, peas, chickpeas, favas and lentils.
Dan Jason, owner of Salt Spring Seeds, is a long-time advocate of pulses as a healthy and environmentally responsible alternative to meat and tofu. His new book is full of great recipes and inspiration for incorporating more pulses into your diet.
As well as being incredibly versatile in the kitchen, pulses are also rich in fibre, high in vitamin B, gluten-free and remarkably low on the glycemic index—contributing to good health and helping to reduce the risk of diabetes, heart disease and other chronic illnesses.
In The Power of Pulses, talented foodie-sister team Hilary Malone and Alison Malone Eathorne collaborate with Jason to create 50 vegetarian recipes featuring fresh and inventive uses for the garden’s bounty, including Broad Bean Succotash with Ricotta & Poached Eggs on Toast, Crispy Chickpea Power Bowl with Tahini Dressing, Sweet Pea and Halloumi Fritters and even Black Bean Brownies with Espresso Ganache. Vibrantly illustrated, this exciting garden-to-kitchen volume is sure to inspire readers to harness the power of pulses!
Of course, there are few of us who will successfully grow these crops, but the recipes and info alone are an inspiring read.
You can find the book in local shops, but also online here.
