I love beans. I never heard it called Pulse before, but I am up to trying the interesting and new recipes that Chandler has in her cookbook. I love that she shares ideas and different ways from many different cultures, such as Indian, African, and Mediterranean. Each recipe looks good and I know this will give me more ideas for beans. I usually make a soup, but here she makes dips, casseroles and other interesting meals out of beans, heck even dessert. If you want some ideas in how to season, cook, and have different types of beans and not always in a soup this book is for you.
