My Legume Love Affair - #68

MLLA Logo February

I am pleased to be hosting My Legume Love Affair this month here on this space. As many readers will know, this long running event is the creation of lovely Susan of The Well Seasoned Cook. It's been a popular destination for lovers of all things legumes since 2008. For a year now, I have been the "legume mistress" and will continue as coordinator. Already I have hosts booked up until July and a list of those who have expressed an interest. I will be sorting out that list soon and hopefully filling in the remaining spots for 2014. A special thanks to Susan for her gorgeous logos each month and also for sponsoring a prize. I hope that this event will continue to be a popular spot to share your treasured bean creations.

Now unto the details...

What you need to know to participate:

I own and maintain a vegetarian cooking site, so only entries that are free of meat, fowl and seafood will be accepted. Please only one submission per blogger. Recipes from your archives will be accepted if reposted and updated. You may submit your recipe to other events.

For your dish to be included in the roundup, it must contain more than just a few tablespoons of legumes. The slight exception to this are legumes such as fenugreek or tamarind that typically are used in smaller quantities. Fresh or dried beans, lentils, pulses, and the sometimes edible pods that contain these seeds, carob, peanuts and derivative products like tofu or besan are all acceptable. Please ensure that your shining ingredient is in fact a member of the legume family. All types of cuisines and courses are welcome, so long as the mighty legume is the key ingredient.

Simply showcase your legume-centric dish on your blog by the end of February,
link to this announcement and the ongoing MLLA page. Kindly send a nod to Susan, our beloved creator of MLLA. Use of the logo is optional but appreciated.

Email the following information to legume.lisa AT gmail DOT com:

1. Your name
2. Name of your blog
3. Title and url of your post
4. A photo (320 px wide or larger) - this is optional, but helpful

Prize information:

1) Susan is generously sponsoring a prize that she will ship worldwide, at her own expense. This month she is offering a silicone gel non-stick multi-purpose mould.

2) Hurst Beans continues as a sponsor meaning US residents have a chance to win a 6-pack assortment of products by the N.K. Hurst Company. Due to shipping restrictions, this prize is restricted to residents of the US.

If the random winner is a resident of the US, they will win both the Hurst Bean Prize and Susan's offering - otherwise a second draw will take place for the Hurst prize from the pool of US residents.

The winner or winners will be contacted via email once a random draw has taken place.

*Note: my immediate family and friends are ineligible to win a prize. Links to products are for non-commercial purposes and intended as prize descriptions. Neither Susan nor myself are receiving monetary or product compensation.
