My Legume Love Affair - The November Edition - 29

It is a pleasure to display a wonderful array of legume recipes this month. My dear friend Susan of The Well Seasoned Cook offered me the opportunity to host MLLA for November. Lots of healthy and tasty vegetarian recipes to choose from here. A big thanks to Susan for organizing this event and thanks to all who submitted their recipes. The random draw has taken place and Tanvi of Sinfully Spicy is the lucky recipient of a six-bag assortment case of dried beans from Hurst Beans and a choice of a cookbook or food related book from Amazon for up to $15.00US. Congratulations Tanvi and your Cornmeal Crusted Black Beans & Green Gram Cutlets will be gracing my table soon.
