Combining stunning pictures and delicious recipes, Merchant Gourmet, the UK’s market-leader in pulses, grains and chestnuts, has launched its first ever cookbook. Pulses & Grains Cookbook focuses on the versatility of its prime ingredients and contains 70 simple, delicious and nutritious savoury and sweet recipes cover breakfast, lunch and dinner, simple snacks and festive feasts.
It’s a must for those who want to experiment with textures, tastes and downright good, wholesome produce but have always lacked the time or courage to try something new. With a nod to the flexitarian, this book is packed with easy ways to please the meat, vegetarian or vegan diner with useful tips to increase the fun and yet take the stress and tedium out of wholesome eating.
This book advocates Merchant’s mantra that chestnuts aren’t just for the festive period. Stuffed full of goodness these tasty little fruits (no, they’re not nuts) are a good source of fibre, vitamin C and B6 and appear in many of the recipes within, making it an essential 2019 food-cupboard ingredient.
“We’re extremely excited to launch our first ever cookbook across the UK. It’s been a labour of love to see it come together and we’re really proud of what we’ve achieved. Merchant Gourmet is a brave brand built on innovation and is loved by a truly loyal following. But we don’t believe in exclusivity or trends. We’re enjoying the revival of the interest in grains and pulses and are delighted to share the many, many perks of these pure and tasty ingredients. Our aim is to continue to bang the drum for, and in some way to take the myth and headache away from, what should be delicious, easy and inexpensive ways to feed the body, mind and soul. Our recipes really do work for today’s needs and tastes,” commented Nyree Chambers, Head of Brand at Merchant Gourmet.

- Cumin spiced carrot and lentil burger – vegetarian
