Today we’re sharing 22 Drool-Worthy Pulse Recipes to temp your taste buds and keep you feeling full all day.
If you’ve never heard the term pulses, you may be wondering what our recipe collection entails today. Pulses are a part of the legume family of hearty natural superfoods, but refer to them in their dry seed form. Think Dry Beans, Lentils, Chickpeas, and Peas.
Pulses are full of protein and fiber to help you stick to a healthy eating plan without hunger pangs.
They can be mixed into all sorts of soups, salads, side dishes, and dips, and can take the place of animal proteins, yet also pair-well with meat. Pulses are the base of many of my favorite dishes, because they taste great and are just so darn versatile!
Pulses are an affordable source of protein. They expand while cooking, so one small bag of dry lentils or beans can feed an entire family. 2016 is the International Year of Pulses. Consider adding Pulses to your weekly diet as a great source of protein, fiber, iron, potassium, and antioxidants.
