 Food Your Body Will Love

Pulses are a whole food that fits well into a healthy and balanced lifestyle. The low fat and high fibre content in pulses lowers blood cholesterol, making them heart healthy while regular consumption of pulses also helps manage blood sugar levels. The high fibre and protein found in pulses works to curb hunger, assisting with weight management.

 

Featured Pulse Recipes

Greek Pasta Salad: Traditional Greek salad, with its hefty pieces of vegetables, makes the perfect vehicle for chickpeas and chunky pasta, which make it more of a meal. Serve on its own, or alongside roast chicken or fish.

Peanut Butter Chickpea Cookies: Crunchy natural peanut butter works well in these cookies, but you can use whatever you have on hand.

Pork Carnitas with Black Beans: Carnitas - or “small meats” - are all the rage these days, and perfect for dinner parties served family-style. Simply set out a pot of braised meat, another of beans, a stack of warmed corn tortillas and all the accompaniments - chopped tomatoes, onions, avocado, salsa and sour cream and let guests serve themselves. For each carnita, spread beans on a tortilla, top with a small pile of braised pork and whatever toppings you like, wrap and eat.

Roasted Squash and Chickpea Pizza: Using a strongly flavoured cheese such as Gruyère on a pizza means you can use a little less of it. While Gruyère complements the flavours beautifully here, you can certainly use mozzarella or cheddar (or a combination of the two) if you prefer.
