Pulses are a cheap and low-fat source of protein, fibre, vitamins and minerals. They are a great way to bulk out dishes and make them more satisfying. Yet we often get asked how to use them. So here are some of our favourite pulse recipes...
Nothing says show-stopper like our FANTASTIC sweet mustard glazed seitan. Butter beans help create the amazing texture of this dish, alongside vital wheat gluten. A firm, plant-based favourite in the Healthy Supplies office, this dish is best served on Sundays with all the trimmings.
This recipe is a great go-to recipe if you have to cook for a crowd! Best served with cornbread! The abundance of pulses and walnuts means that this dish is packed full of protein and will keep you fuller for longer!
Our brazil nut, lentil and tomato roast is super easy to make and is a guaranteed crowd pleaser. Red lentils work so well in these sorts of dishes. They are high in protein and soak up other flavours really well.
You can sprout most beans including chickpeas, mung beans, aduki beans and whole lentils. Mung beans are the most popular: once sprouted, they become the familiar Chinese Bean Sprouts! For best results, use a germinator jar and water twice a day for 5 days. For best results, use organic pulses, and please note that split lentils are not sproutable - only whole ones. Please also note that kidney beans are not for sprouting, as they must be cooked in order for them to be edible.
Pinto beans are the primary ingredient in refried beans, so it makes sense that they would taste oh-so delicious in a burritos. This recipe combines swiss chard, pinto beans, wholemeal tortillas and spices to make a healthier version of this popular wrap!
