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.

Whether you're a vegetarian or not, some meals without meat will eventually become a necessity - but that does not mean they can't be just as good, as this proves.

This is delightfully simple as everything goes into one pot, no accompaniments are needed, and it provides a complete menu for two people. It is also very good with flageolet or borlotti beans.
