My Legume Love Affair 100th Edition + $25 Amazon Giveway

It has been almost 6 years (July 2010, MLLA #25) when I first guest hosted Susan's and now Lisa's My Legume Love Affair event. Since then, I participated with numerous entries and even guest hosted three times. I signed up for the event couple of months ago and to my happy surprise I realized just yesterday that this would be MLLA's 100th edition. Wohoo! 100, in this fleeting blog-o-sphere is a big milestone and I thought it can't just be a regular version of the event. Isn't it? So, to make it extra special, I am planning to randomly select a participant for a chance to win a 25$ Amazon gift card. Are you guys ready to get those aprons on, to rock & roll and to celebrate the goodness and versatility of our lovely legumes.

Rules are pretty much the same and once your recipe is posted, add the URL using the Linky tool attached to the end of this post.. Non-bloggers can participate too. Details inside the post. I can't wait to see your recipe entries and finally who wins the gift card giveaway. Yay!.

Some simple rules of participation:

1. Only recipes where a legume is the star ingredient are to be sent.  Use of the above MLLA logo is appreciated.

In French, a legume denotes any vegetable but here we are talking about legume in its widely accepted or known meaning as in beans, lentils or pulses. Just to give you an idea of what should be considered as legumes for this event - lentils, any fresh or dried beans, soy beans and their derivatives like tofu, garbanzo beans / chickpeas and their derivatives like besan, tamarind, fenugreek, carob and peanuts etc.

2. Entries must be vegetarian (eggs and dairy products are allowed). Only 1 entry will be accepted per blogger/participant.

3. You may submit any recipe featuring lentils provided you have posted it on your blog between now and the 31st October 2016 midnight PST. You can re-post old posts provided you re-post that recipe in this month and update it to include the necessary links to qualify for participation. If you don't own a blog, you can still participate by sending your recipe details to info(dot)siri(at)gmail(dot)com. I will feature them in the final roundup post.

4. Your MLLA post should mention the phrase "My Legume Love Affair" and contain links to this announcement post, Lisa's page and to Susan’s page (original creator of MLLA).

5.  Add your blog entries (URL) in the Linky below. Every recipe entry submitted to the event is eligible for a random drawing of the 25$ Amazon gift card giveaway. I will post a roundup featuring all recipes in the first week of November and announce the winner.
