Calling All Bean Aficionados!

My Legume Love Affair 11th Helping is officially underway! It is my honor and pleasure to be your hostess for this month's edition of the wildly successful event created by Susan, The Well-Seasoned Cook. I hope you will join us by sharing your awesome legume-centric dish this month. The event round-up will be posted the first week of June. So, come one, come all, show us what you bean cooking!

Join In the Fun!
  • Create a dish where the LEGUME (beans, lentils, pulses, and/or the edible pods that contain these seeds, and derivative products like tofu) is the STAR ingredient.
  • Post this dish on your blog during the month of May. Link to this announcement and to Susan's MLLA Host Line-up. Feel free to use the MLLA 11 Badge.
  • Email your name, name of your blog, the link to your legume dish, your location, description of your dish, and a photo (350 pixels wide) OR recipe, to tastewiththeeyes AT cox DOT net by May 31st. If you like, please include one or two sentences describing the inspiration for your entry.

As a special treat to one of the participants, Susan will be giving away this darling cookbook: A World of Dumplings: Filled Dumplings, Pockets, and Little Pies from Around the Globe by Brian Yarvin.

We are more than happy to accept multiple recipes for this event, however only one will be included in the random drawing for A World of Dumplings.

To my non-food-blogging readers, we encourage your participation too! It is your opportunity to share your delicious cooking but more than that, it is our unique opportunity to sample your creativity! What do you say?
