Announcing My Legume Love Affair, Seventh Helping!

Well I am having a love affair..finally with the legume! This event, the brain child of The Well-Seasoned Cook Susan, is one of the popular online events happening. Being an Indian, I don't' have to emphasize on our legume love! It was indeed a pleasure when Susan dropped in a mail asking if I would be willing to host this. Though I was almost ready with another Mela, I thought I will start this New year with this wonderful event!

Ok let me first get into what makes a legume, though many of you know and must have read about it a lot. I just wanted to be clear to myself first.

A legume is a plant in the family Fabaceae (or Leguminosae), or a fruit of these specific plants. Well-known legumes include alfalfa, clover, peas, beans, lentils, lupins, mesquite, carob, and peanuts. Beans, lentils, peanuts, peas, and soybeans are some of the common legumes consumed by humans. Grain legumes are cultivated for their seeds, and are also called pulses. Grain legumes include beans, lentils, lupins, peas, and peanuts

Though the French refer to any kind of vegetable when they mean l├ęgume, we are concentrating only on the pods.

So you have a wide choice to choose!



Also, the prize, The Lady & Sons Savannah Country Cookbook, is offered by Susan to one of the participants.
