Pulses Recipes

We're constantly being urged to eat more chickpeas, cannellini beans, lentils and other pulses, as they're extremely nutritious as well as being cheap and easy to cook. Delia has masses of recipes that bring out their flavour and add texture to other foods.

La Potee (French Farmhouse Soup with Bacon, Sausage and Beans)Serves 8

La Potee (French Farmhouse Soup with Bacon, Sausage and Beans)

A hearty soup drawn from the rustic traditions of French cooking: vary the vegetables according to season and whatever you have to hand. All you need to serve it is plenty of crusty bread.

 
 
FrijolemoleServes 4-6

Frijolemole

This Mexican recipe is rather like hummus, but with added zing from limes and chillies. Serve it with flatbreads or salad as a dip, starter or light lunch.

 
 
Dhal CurryServes 2

Dhal Curry

Dhal is simply the Indian word for lentils. The best kind to use for this are the red split lentils which most supermarkets stock.

 
 
Mashed Black-eyed Beancakes with Ginger Onion MarmaladeServes 4

Mashed Black-eyed Beancakes with Ginger Onion Marmalade

Black-eyed beans are the lovely nutty beans that are popular in recipes from the deep south of America and, with the addition of other vegetables, they make very good beancakes.

 
 
Chinese Stir-fried RiceServes 4

Chinese Stir-fried Rice

The most important point to remember if you want to fry rice successfully is that it must be cooked but cold, so you must cook the rice ahead and then allow it to cool completely. I have used authentic Chinese ingredients here

 
 
White Bean and Tuna Fish Salad with Lemon Pepper DressingServes 4 as a main course or 6 as a starter

White Bean and Tuna Fish Salad with Lemon Pepper Dressing

As it uses mainly storecupboard ingredients this nutritious salad is a good recipe to have up your sleeve for busy days.

 
 
Black Bean Soup with Black Bean SalsaServes 4

Black Bean Soup with Black Bean Salsa

This soup is simply stunning, one you'll want to make over and over again. Black beans don't have a strong flavour of their own but they do carry other flavours superbly, while at the same time yielding a unique velvety texture.

 
 
Broad Bean Salad with Pancetta and Sherry VinegarServes 4 generously

Broad Bean Salad with Pancetta and Sherry Vinegar

The fresh broad bean season seems to be so short, I always feel the need to feast as much as possible when I can, hence this salad. It's good as a first course or to serve alongside other salads in a cold buffet.

 
 
Thai Bean Salad with Pink Grapefruit and Grapes - sponsored by Singha BeerServes 4, or 6 as a starter

Thai Bean Salad with Pink Grapefruit and Grapes - sponsored by Singha Beer

In Thailand, they use pomelo in salads, which is very similar to grapefruit. I have used pink grapefruit here, but when they're not available, you could ring the changes and use a thinly sliced, medium-sized mango.

 
 
Purée of Broad BeansServes 2-3

Purée of Broad Beans

This light, fluffy green purée would be an excellent accompaniment to any pork or bacon dish, and is a lovely partner to some good pork sausages.
