My Legume Love Affair #41: the roundup (part two)
To facilitate reading, I have divided the submissions I have received into two sets. The roundup of My Legume Love Affair #41 started in this post and continues here.
Make yourself comfortable, then follow me on a journey of flavors, colors, traditions and culinary creativity. For each submission, I will give you the official information (author, blog name and post title) and a brief description or quote that summarizes it.
If reading about all these great recipes has inspired you to participate, My Legume Love Affair #42 just started and is hosted by Kiran of SUMADHURA. The deadline for submitting of your legume dish is December 31. You can always find out who is hosting on this page.
At the end of this portion of the roundup, I reveal the lucky winner of the event prizes.
