Banyen's Description: 

An inspiring do-it-yourself guide to growing and eating pulses—a versatile, nutritious and highly sustainable crop that includes beans, peas, chickpeas, lentils and favas.

For those who are committed to increasing self-reliance and supporting locally available food sources, pulses are an often-overlooked source of ethical protein. Dan Jason, owner of Salt Spring Seeds, is a long-time advocate of pulses as a healthy and environmentally responsible alternative to meat and tofu. In The Power of Pulses, Jason provides tips on how North American home gardeners can grow and save their own delicious, vividly hued heirloom beans, peas, chickpeas, lentils and favas.

As well as being incredibly versatile in the kitchen, pulses are also rich in fibre, high in vitamin B, gluten-free and remarkably low on the glycemic index—contributing to good health and helping to reduce the risk of diabetes, heart disease and other chronic illnesses.

Who knew that garden-grown pulses have an unforgettable fresh taste and creamy texture? And who knew that wherever they grow, these drought-resistant, super-easy dynamos pump nitrogen into the soil, leaving it healthier and more fertile than before?
 

It’s no wonder then that the United Nations’ General Assembly has named 2016 the International Year of Pulses. Thanks to their durability, ultra-light ecological footprint and long-lasting benefits to the earth, these hardy, bountiful and remarkably nourishing ancient crops are now lauded as the food of the future.

In The Power of Pulses, foodie-sister team Hilary Malone and Alison Malone Eathorne collaborate with Jason to create 40+ vegetarian recipes featuring fresh and inventive uses for the garden's bounty, including Broad Bean Succotash with Fresh Ricotta & Poached Eggs on Toast, Crispy Chickpea Power Bowl with Kale, Quinoa and Dukkah Crunch and even Black Bean Brownies with Espresso Ganache. Vibrantly illustrated, this inviting garden-to-kitchen volume will inspire readers to harness the power of pulses!
