Looking forward to reading the contributions:) Many thanks Lori for hosting:)
Happy to do it! Now if you will excuse me there is a bowl of chickpeas waiting for in the kitchen begging to be turned into a delicious soup. 🙂
Very creative! Thanks for hosting, this took some time 🙂
It was team work! Thx for being on the team!!!
Thanks for inviting me!
peas don’t count, do they? My favorite soup is split pea, I suppose that I’ll have to try a few of the bean soups.
If they are hardshell peas (and split peas are!), then yeah. I’m a little wobbly on these distinctions, too. I mean, the word “pulses” is tough enough! Enjoy your soup!!! 🙂
I just want to eat what is in that pot, and # the distinctions 😀
Red lentil soup and a handful of arugula (or rocket, as I think you folks call it) for spice, texture and, of course, taste! 🙂 Thx for stopping by!!!
Well done. (The post, not the pulses – though they are fine if well done too.)
Thanks! And, yes, under-cooked beans very bad! 🙂
High five to plant protein!
Back atcha! 🙂
Licking lips. Mom fixed some black-eyed peas and cornbread last night. They were wonderful!! Thanks for doing this my sweet friend. XOXO – Bacon
My pleasure, sweets! 🙂
