PULSES- YES THOSE THAT MAKE YOU TRUMP!

Posted 15-07-2016

Pulses don't have a good reputation, they take a long time to prepare, give you gassy tummies and are generally hard to incorporate into foods.

UNLESS you know how to!

I have found that the best way to solve this is to batch cook and portion them out ready for use.

Method

HOW TO PREPARE THEM

I start off by selecting 3-5 types and soak them overnight in separate bowls. Next day you can either cook them in a pressure cooker that will only take you 10 minutes, or boil them separately until they are semi soft. If you are using them for cooking in dishes it is best to keep them al dente.
 
Once cooked, leave to cool off and portion out ready to freeze.
This way you will always have pulses ready to go into your meals that are chemical free and un-processed.
 
Remember you can use whichever types you want to, there are so many different varieties! Trust me I will show you a variety of dishes you can incorporate them into!
