How To Use Pulses!

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...

  

1. Sweet Mustard Glazed Seitan

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.

  

2. Blessed Buddha Bowl

This beautiful power bowl is full of delicious superfoods - including roasted chick peas! The perfect dish for summer. Use our canned chickpeas for a speedy supper!

  

3. Vegan Chilli with Walnuts

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!

  

4. Brazil Nut, Lentil & Tomato Roast

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.

  

5. Bean and Pepper Tortilla Bites

These vegetarian bites are the perfect side dish for summer. Beans and egg make for such a great combo, and they are packed with protein!

  

6. Tuscan Aduki Bean Soup (via thedailymeal.com)

This unique Tuscan Bean soup is vegan friendly and packed full of nutrients. It combines kombu, kale, chickpeas, cannelini beans, aduki beans, chopped tomatoes, vegetable stock and lots of flavoursome herbs.

  

7. Sun Dried Tomato Falafel

We've added both lentils AND chickpeas to our tasty tomato falafels. They are the perfect addition to picnics and bbqs. Serve as they are with salad or in a wrap.

  

8. Did you know that you can sprout pulses?

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.

  

9. Pinto Bean Burritos (via kalynskitchen.com)

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!

  

10. Lentil & Vegetable Vegan Wellington.

Green lentils make this vegetable wellington into something truly special. The perfect dish for serving a crowd.

  

11. Pumpkin Cannellini Hummus

Creamy, savoury dip - perfect for summer! Serve with carrots, peppers and cucumber for a tasty and nutritious afternoon snack!

  

12. Minestrone Soup

This vegan-friendly soup is packed with flavours of Tuscany. Cannellini beans provided an added protein hit.
