Click: Vivid Legumes

Vivid Legumes (02) by MeetaK

If truth be told I took this picture a little while back. Before I knew the theme for Click this month would be Beans and Lentils. I wanted to experiment with a few new flavors and was thinking of greens and legumes. At my organic store I chanced upon a colorful bag filled with everything I was looking for.

There were different types of lentils, chickpeas and beans. I could hardly wait to get back home and start taking pictures. Like someone possessed I set up my shot. Sometimes things all come together perfectly. This was one of those days. My photo shoot of the beans and lentils went perfectly and I was pleased with the first set of photos.

I was excited to finally get in the kitchen and start my experimenting. Normally, the experiments are filled with trials and errors, this day though everything harmonized like magic. I admit the combination of ingredients and spices I used that day were unusual but it worked. And yes the recipe will be coming soon, I promise.

For now enjoy the colorful moments dried beans and lentils can bring with my "Vivid Legumes"
