Pulses and Grains

Currently pretending to be very healthy with piles of grain and pulse based salads.

The great thing about these salad is that unlike tomatoe or lettuce based salads they actually mature in the fridge rather than going soggy

I think the secret is to have plenty of fresh herbs hanging around to mix in thyme coriander and mint work very well . I tend to make a new salad each day and then have a little of each with a hunk of bread also a big blob of home made hummus.

They can also be very effectively put into a Tiffin Carrier for picnics although this weekend I was too busy testing out the new fold up Orikaso picnic set

Its very spooky that somethings fold up and holds water but great fun especially if you have an engineer to help you put it together
