Guest Hosting My Legume Love Affair (MLLA) # 30

Hello Friends,

Here is the second event My Legume Love Affair or what we in short call MLLA # 30 my blog is hosting for this month. It has been one of my favorite and I cannot get over the fact that even though it is in its 30th edition, every month, I see so many new recipes being tried and shared.


Firstly, I want to thank Susan for giving me this wonderful opportunity to host this edition of MLLA. I am truly honored to host my favorite event.

Being a vegetarian, I am sure many of you (who are also vegetarian) agree that this is our main source of protein. And, we love our legumes J

Now, what is a Legume? Wikipedia says,
“A legume in botanical writing is a plant in the family Fabaceae (or Leguminosae), or a fruit of these specific plants. A legume fruit is a simple dry fruit that develops from a simple carpel and usually dehisces (opens along a seam) on two sides. Well-known legumes include alfalfa, clover, peas, beans, lentils, lupins, mesquite, carob, soy, and peanuts.”

In our event, we allow you to post any recipe with any kind of legume or its derivatives as a main ingredient. For example, you can make a recipe with fresh Chickpeas, dried chickpeas, ground chickpeas or any form of chickpea. Remember one thing, that a spoonful or soupcon of a legume is not quite enough to qualify. It has to be the star ingredient or at least very obvious and dominant in the recipe . Hope that explains! If still in doubt, feel free to email me J

Now, here are some simple rules that one needs to follow to participate:
  • All courses and cultures are welcome, but they have to strictly vegetarian. Eggs are allowed only if used in a baking process.
  • Multiple recipes are permitted (although only one submission will be counted towards the random drawing/s). 
  • Recipes submitted to other events are also permitted. 
  • Recipes from archives can be accepted ONLY if updated and reposted as current. 
  • Recipes from those who do not blog are accepted and make eligible the participants to win a prize.
  • Please send you entries with the subject line "MLLA # 30" and with the following details @ Priya.mitharwal@gmail.com - Blog Name, Your Name, Recipe, Name, Recipe URL, Location (Location of participants is necessary so that I will know who qualifies to win both or one of the prizes. It's strictly for prize purposes and that all locations will be kept confidential) and Photo (Photo is preferred, but not essential).
  • Use of logo is optional.
  • Please ensure your posts are linked to this announcement Susan's link.

Now, the best part of all, the Prizes.
  1. Winner chooses any cookbook or food-related book from Amazon U.S. valued at not more than 15USD for the book itself.  This prize is offered by Susan at her expense and she will also absorb worldwide shipping charges.  F.T.C. Notice: Susan does not receive any compensation from Amazon. 
  2. Hurst Bean Box - A case of six bags of the winner's choice of Hurst Bean products, suitable for every diet, sponsored by Hurst Bean. (Due to shipping restrictions, this prize can only be awarded if the winner is a U.S. resident.) F.T.C. Notice: In May 2010, Susan, at her request, received two Hurst Bean complimentary products which are not available for purchase in her local markets. Susan does not generally accept free products from Hurst Bean nor is she financially compensated by them.
  3. Drawing Structure - If the winner is a U.S. resident, she/he will be the recipient of both Prizes 1 and 2 above.  In the event that an international winner is drawn, a second drawing will be conducted from the U.S. pool of entrants to ensure that the Hurst Prize is awarded every month.  In these instances, the international winner will receive the book, and the U.S. winner will receive the Hurst Prize. 

OK, so what are you waiting for. Whip up some yummilicious recipes and start sending your entries soon J
That is all for now. Take care till next post.
