Pulses: little legumes packing plenty of power

For a long time, pulses were considered to be ‘poor man's food’, and were not hugely popular as a result. But peas, beans, lentils and the like have been making a comeback in kitchens for a while now. Pulses also boast a number of plus points, being easy to store, inexpensive and filling. What’s more, their nutritional content also makes them power players. Rich in protein, they give vegetarians and vegans what they need in their diet. Together with their high protein content, pulses also have a number of vitamins and minerals, including vitamin B1, zinc, magnesium and iron.

Pulses come in a wide range of shapes, colours and flavours, bringing something new to your cooking and providing plenty of variety. Get inspired by our bright selection of recipes and try out our delicious chickpea burger with mashed avocado or our fiery classic chilli con carne.
