IT IS THAT TIME OF YEAR WHEN THE PURSE STRINGS HAVE BEEN STRETCHED TO THEIR UTMOST WITH CHRISTMAS TREATS AND ALSO THE SALES.
Also pay day at the end of January is a long way off and it means being a bit more careful on the food budget for the next 5 weeks.
Cooking with pulses ( peas, beans and lentils) is a good way of economising while providing that all important protein, iron, zinc and fiber.
Many people do not know how nutritious and delicious dishes which include pulses can be. I feel sad to see occasionally that cans of pulses are discarded by people from food parcels. When I mention how easy it is to cook with these items people are totally unaware of this.
So I have adapted the recipe below for one from an American one.
