It may no longer be the International Year of Pulses, but lentils, beans and peas have been a staple for me ever since I can remember. They are not only nutritious, delicious and filling, but they make a great base for many a meal.

As I am co-hosting the Cool Cauliflower Recipe Collection this month, it seemed like the right time to try it out.
