I have the honor of being the host for the April 2015 edition of My Legume Love Affair (MLLA), the popular, legume-centered event that is the brainchild of Susan of The Well-Seasoned Cook and has been hosted by Lisa of Lisa's Kitchen since February 2013.
Participation in the event revolves around a recipe that showcases one or more legumes. The recipe can be savory or sweet but must be vegetarian. The legume (or legumes) must be one of the main ingredients, not a minor character. (Exceptions to this general rule are legumes whose flavor is so intense that they are used in small quantities, like tamarind and fenugreek.)
Example of legumes include (but are not limited to):
- fresh or dried beans of any kind
- chickpeas, ak.a., garbanzo beans (fresh or dried or their flour, a.k.a., besan)
- peas (fresh or dried or their pods)
- fava beans (fresh or dried)
- soy beans (fresh or dried, or their derivative products, like tofu)
- carob beans
- lupini beans
Not an exhaustive list, but it should give you a sense of the wide range of options. Note that in French the word légumes means vegetables, and also legumes. This event is about the second meaning.
Let's celebrate nourishing legumes!
You can submit a new post or a post from your archive reposted for the occasion. Only one post per blog, please. You can submit the recipe to other events as well.
