Got a pulse?

Here's Chef Simon Reynolds cooking up a hill of beans at the annual Pulse Days in Saskatoon.
(Pulse is the name for a class of edible legumes including beans, chickpeas, lentils and dried peas.)

Can you guess these muffins are full of beans?

What did I learn at Pulse Days?
▪ Saskatchewan is the world's second largest producer of pulse crops.
▪ India is the only country that grows more pulse crops than Canada.
▪ India is also Canada's biggest pulse customer.
▪ Indians are eating fewer pulses than before.
▪ Canada is looking for new markets for our pulses.
▪ Have you had your pulse lately?
