Pulse Puree
Pulse puree can be made from canned or boiled pulses.
Canned Pulses
  • Rinse and drain a 15 ounce can of pulses: discard the liquid; yields about 1 ¼ cups.
  • Place the pulses in a food processor, add ¼ cup hot water and puree until the mixture has the consistency of canned pumpkin. If needed, add additional water, 1 tablespoon at a time, to reach this consistency.
  • Makes about 1 cup puree. Refrigerate or freeze unused puree. 
Raw Pulses
  •  Add 1/3 cup sorted and rinsed raw lentils to 2 cups boiling water. Cook until soft. Drain; discard the cooking water, leaving about 1 ¼ cups cooked pulses. 
  •  Follow steps 2-3 above.
