Budget recipes with pulses


Lentils, chickpeas and beans are cheap as chips but not very popular, yet they're deliciously different in soups: creamy, tasty and full of goodness (being packed with fiber and antioxidants).  

Pulses go particularly well with herbs like thyme and rosemary, which make them easier to digest. A bowl of soup made with pulses, a yogurt and a piece of fruit make a perfect light evening meal. 
Tip: Pour your soup through a very fine sieve after blending to remove any unappetizing skin.  

Chefs love pulses for their delicate flavor, but we tend to forget we've a bag lurking in the back of the cupboard at home. Time to resdiscover them and create some seriously tasty budget soups.
