If you are considering eating less meat and more plant-based meals, Pride Beans, Pulses and Grains is the perfect range of products for you. With their range of beans, lentils, and dried peas you can start experimenting with diverse and delicious meat-free meals. Pulses really are the heroes of the plant-based world, and here’s why:
Pulses taste great
From creamy bean dips to spicy dahls, pulses bring a satisfying savoury taste to the table. They shine as a salad ingredient, in soups, and as a topping on everything from nachos to pizza. They are flavourful enough to be enjoyed on their own, and filling enough to satisfy even the staunchest meat eater. No wonder more and more chefs turn to pulses as the key ingredient in the dishes they develop.
Foodies know that dried pulses, like Pride’s red speckled beans, lentils and dried peas, pack a flavour punch. Once you’ve discovered the delicious reward of cooking your beans from scratch, you wouldn’t want to have it any other way. Canned beans simply cannot compete.
They are nutritious
Pulses are an excellent source of fibre, protein and other key nutrients. They are packed with antioxidants and are even touted as a superfood. Studies have shown that pulses can also help maintain a healthy body weight, reduce post-meal “crashes” and reduce the risk of chronic diseases.
It’s an affordable meal choice
Dried pulses are budget-friendly at about R0.90 – R1.50 per portion (30 g raw), making it the perfect ingredients to get you through the month without compromising on flavour or nutrition.
Dried pulses can be stored in an airtight container for up to a year, making it less likely to waste food due to it expiring.
Pulses are Sustainable
Pulse crops are water-efficient, drought-tolerant, frost-hardy and use less water to produce than meat, while still being high in protein.
Opt for pulses and get your plant-based fix. Look out for Pride Beans, Pulses and Grains, available in all major retailers.
