2016 is the Year of the Pulse!  The United Nations focuses on a different food source about every 4 years, and utilising pulse-based proteins is the emphasis this year.

Chef, Julie Biuso says pulses are  an inexpensive way to include protein in a weekly diet - things such as dried beans, chickpeas and lentils. 

She also shares a recipe for Lentil Salad with Golden Raisins & Roasted Tomatoes.
