I’m delighted to be hosting My Legume Love Affair #106 for April 2017. What is My Legume Love Affair, you might ask? MLLA is a glorious blog linky that celebrates all things legume. The primary keeper of all things MLLA is Lisa of the Food and Spice Blog. Lisa took over MLLA from Susan of The Well Seasoned Cook. April marks the 106th MLLA and a chance for us all to celebrate the lovely legume!
To participate, all you need to do is prepare a legume-focused dish. Mention MLLA in your post and link back to this announcement, Lisa’s blog and also Susan’s blog, as she is the original founder of the event. Share your creation using the linky tool at the end of this post by the end of the month. Use of the lovely logo, designed by Susan, is optional, but appreciated (plus, it’s so pretty – I love pictures of lovely legumes!).
Only one entry per blogger please and it must be vegetarian (eggs and dairy are ok). Recipes from archives will only be accepted if reposted and updated with the links required.
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, and derivative products such as tofu or besan, along with fenugreek, carob, and peanuts are all acceptable. The possibilities are endless. Please just ensure that your shining ingredient is in fact a member of the legume family. All types of cuisines and courses are welcome, meaning appetizers, sides, mains and desserts are all acceptable so long as the mighty legume is the key ingredient.
Please post your recipe between April 1 and April 30. If you don’t have a blog and still would like to participate, please send your entry to me directly at fixmealittlelunch(at)gmail(dot)com. I will post a roundup post of all recipes the first week in May. I’m so excited to see what you post and get inspired by all the lovely legume recipes!
