Hosting the 101st edition of MLLA, created by Susan of The Well-Seasoned Cook and now hosted by Lisa of Lisa's Kitchen was, as in previous occasions, a great pleasure. Throughout the past month, I have received contributions from around the world, delicious variations on the theme of legumes.
Hosting an event means having the pleasure of collecting and then sharing the collection — of savoring in solitude each dish as it is submitted to me, and then inviting everybody to the final banquet. It was a great pleasure to welcome new participants to the party and to say Hi! to old acquaintances.
I am presenting the contributions in the order I have received them. For each submission, I will give you the official information (author, blog name and post title) and a brief description that summarizes it — a tiny taste that will entice you to follow the link and read the details.
Now, please, make yourself comfortable, then follow me on a journey of flavors, colors, traditions and culinary creativity.
Siri of Cooking with Siri shares with us Gongura Pappu (Sorrel Leaves Dal) With Peanuts
"The only hard part is to remove the sorrel leaves from their stems and rest is just a breeze. If you have never made this version of dal before, I urge you to try some."
Lisa of Lisa's Kitchen presents Sweet Potato, Chickpea and Spinach Curry with Green Peas
"What is distinctive about this curry is not only the creaminess, but the satisfying blend of hot and aromatic spices that accompany the sweet earthiness of the vegetables."
Janet of The Taste Space prepared Autumn Chickpea and Lentil Soup
"Tomatoes, kale, sage, oregano and basil along with two kinds of beans, chickpeas and lentils. The flavours melded into a glorious soup of deliciousness."
Sadhna of Herbs, Spices and Tradition prepared Four Bean Curry
"This curry is a fusion dish in which I added four types of beans-Red kidney beans, white chickpeas, white broad beans/soya beans and black eyed beans."
Simona of briciole, your host for this edition, shared Purgatory bean salad with tahini sauce and Asian pear
"fagioli del Purgatorio (Purgatory Beans) are small white beans grown on the volcanic soil of a beautiful region of Italy, around Lago di Bolsena"
Thank you so much to all who participated to this edition of MLLA!
I believe all the submissions I have received are presented in the roundup. However, mishaps are part of life, so if you find anything missing or in need of amendment anywhere in the roundup, please do let me know.
A beautiful set of legume-centered dishes awaits you. I am sure that you'll be inspired by the recipes presented. Heta of The VegHog is hosting My Legume Love Affair #102 and will be happy to receive your contribution(s) to the event. The deadline for submitting your legume dish is December 31.
