Pulse: Truly Modern Recipes for Beans, Chickpeas and Lentils, to Tempt Meat Eaters and Vegetarians Alike Published 17 September 2013 by Pavilion
Number of pages: 272
My rating: ★ ★ ★ ★ ★  It was amazing
"At last pulses are ditching their 70s hippie label and are back in vogue. Pulses are incredibly economical and healthy and, increasingly, people are looking for new sources of protein as meat eating goes on the wane (for both environmental and economical reasons). The time is ripe for a truly modern look at preparing these under-exploited ingredients. 
Including a guide to pulses, this exhaustive volume will also cover all you need to know to buy, prepare and cook pulses, and how to store them. 180 recipes are divided into dips and purees, fritters, croquettes and patties, soups, salads, formal starters, sides, vegetarian mains, and 'the full monty' (hearty mains, including meat). Jenny Chandler has collected a mouthwatering range of recipes that are truly international in flavour and will provide plenty of tips for everyday catering. With modern, crisp photography and an elegant design this is a book to update every foodie’s bookshelf and will be a go-to book for years to come."
Pulse - it certainly got mine racing! We all know about pulses and that we should eat more of them, however we don't because of their reputation for being very difficult to cook.Jenny Chandler explains it all, in a very clear and concise manner. She literally spills the beans on exactly how to choose, prepare, and make the most out of these wonders of nature, no matter how they are available to you (fresh, dried, canned). All of her tips and tricks are shared with us and are invaluable.The author does not just focus on cooking pulses, but also explains how to easily obtain the tastiest and healthiest shooting sprouts at home with minimal effort.The plentiful collection of recipes is full of additional suggestions and variations to suit vegans, vegetarians and omnivores alike.This book will get you reaching for those unloved beans and pulses in your cupboard and compel you to give it a go. A true must-have for any household. ( )
