I am pleased to host My Legume Love Affair #95 for the month of May 2016. MLLA is an ongoing, monthly event since 2008, in which, bloggers from any country or cuisine can take part in this event by presenting their vegetarian legume recipes. This event was created and started by Susan of The well seasoned cook in 2008, and has been hosted by Lisa of Lisa's  Kitchen since February 2013.

This is the second time I am hosting this prestigious event/ blog party since I have started this blog two years ago. In the month of November 2015, I hosted the same event the very first time. I am really obliged and would like to give thanks to Lisa from Lisa's kitchen, who gave me the chance to host this event again in May 2016.

The 68th United Nations general assembly have declared 2016 - The International year of pulses. Check the website below. The aim of International year of pulses 2016 is to highlight the benefits of pulse-based protein and to encourage people to use lentils in their diet. It means people have globally acknowledged the importance and benefits of lentils. Because of this global recognition, I am changing the rule of this event (with Lisa's consent) and asking my fellow bloggers to present any vegetarian lentil recipe which they have posted in 2016. I hope this way more bloggers will get a chance to participate.

I have posted many lentil recipes on my blog and have participated many times in this event. Now I am encouraging my fellow bloggers to participate and make this event a huge success.

Legumes include all types of lentils, pulses, fresh or dried beans, peanuts etc, the list is endless. You can even include chickpeas flour or any other lentil flour too, all you need to do is to present your legume-centric dish on this event page.Rules and Guidelines for this event
