Easy Peasy Legume Recipes for kids

Black-eyed bean salad with tuna, Scottish lentil soup or apple chickpea cake – just a couple of very easy recipes from our legume cookbook.

Legumes, or „pulses“, are a cheap and environmentally friendly alternative to animal protein, providing several micro- and macronutrients. However, while beans, lentils and Co. have always been enjoying great popularity in oriental and North African countries, the consumption in Europe does not comply with the nutritional recommendations. With this book, we aim to raise legumes’ popularity among children and their parents by showing how easily delicious legume dishes can be prepared. Beans, peas and Co. are highly variable in taste and possible preparation methods, but they are also colourful and come in many different shapes; that makes them visually appealing to children. Given this book being a collection of delicious recipes, general information and a manual on cooking legumes, we encourage you as parents to let your children take part in the cooking process.

In the first pages of our cookbook, you learn some interesting facts about pulses and a few basic cooking methods. And then come the recipes! Happy cooking!
