Also known as legumes, pulses are the fruits and seeds of leguminous plants, and develop inside pods.

Those that mature and dry on the plant include broad beans, chickpeas, kidney beans, lentils, soya beans, and white beans.

Immature pulses, picked prior to maturation and drying, include green peas.

Pulses give us an array of phytonutrients as well as soluble fibre which is filling as well as good for helping to lower cholesterol.
