(NC)—"Canned pulses (dry beans, chickpeas, lentils and dry peas)", are brilliantly easy to handle. Use them in Lentil Tabbouleh Salad….one of the simplest salads I've ever made. Or blend chickpeas with couscous - lightning quick to prepare and sparked with cranberries for a punch of both protein and flavour. Both dishes can be made ahead and chilled - ready to serve at a moment's notice. I heap them on salad greens and serve them with good crusty bread or as a side dish to whatever's on the grill that evening.
