SUPERLEGUMES BY CHRISSY FREER

Superlegumes cover sml

I am VERY excited to announce that my next book ‘superlegumes… eat your way to great health’ is literally hitting the shelves, due out on 1st June, published by Murdoch books.

Legumes are one of natures true super foods. Not only high in fibre, an excellent source of plant protein, gluten free and a source of low GI carbohydrate, they are also rich in several micro nutrients including B group vitamins, iron, calcium, phosphorous, zinc and magnesium!

Superlegumes explores dried legumes (such as cannellini beans, chickpeas, black beans and kidney beans) as well as fresh varieties (such as fresh peas, beans, and borlotti beans). It also contains a few surprising members….peanuts, carob and indigenous wattleseed.

With 90 delicious recipes, nutrition information, interesting facts, cooking guides and tips, superlegumes will help you incorporate these highly nutritious foods into your every day diet.

As I truly believe legumes are one of the most nutritious and under utilised whole foods, and we should be eating MORE of them! Below is a delicious recipe from the chickpea chapter of superlegumes to give you a taste of what is to come. Hope you like it!

You can buy a signed copy of superlegumes here. Please contact me if you would like the book dedicated.

16 Apr Superlegumes Recipe: Mandarin, pistachio and chickpea cake

Thought I would share one more recipe from my new book, superlegumes, to help inspire you to be cooking with legumes!
This would have to be one of my absolute favourite recipes in the book, a delicious whole mandarin and chickpea cake…. that's right, a cake made with chickpeas! You will not believe how delicious it is, and the combination of nutty chickpeas with the Middle Eastern flavours of pistachios and mandarins is simply quite amazing. I promise you will not be disappointed.
It will keep in an airtight container for up to 3 days.
