My Legume Love Affair (MLLA) #45 {ROUNDUP}

I am so excited to bring you a post that is chock-full of delightful dishes piled high with a variety of fabulous legumes that were cooked up during the month of March.  I had a wonderful time hosting My Legume Love Affair #45 and was amazed by the sheer variety of legume-laced goodies that so many awesome bloggers cooked up this month.

Whether you want to start off your day with waffles or paani puri -- you can.  Go ahead and choose from soup, fritters, pasta, or salads for a sustaining and healthy lunch.  Maybe you're thirsty and want to cool off with a tasty beverage -- with or without alcohol?  You can do that.  We've got appetizers and tasty bites to get your juices flowing.  Entrees that contain meat or ones that are purely vegetarian...either way, they're packed with legumey goodness.  And don't forget the side dishes to complete your meal.  Maybe you want to try your hand at growing your own bean sprouts or making your own tofu?  Oh yeah.  Look no further.  And maybe your sweet tooth is just itching to be satisfied.  You can do that here, as well.  From America to Mexico to India to Turkey...and beyond.  You'll find a little bit of everything as you browse these fabulous selections sent in from around the globe.

Thank you Susan for allowing me to host this delicious monthly event and thanks to everybody who shared their delicious creations right here.  So, without further ado, I present to you.... My Legume Love Affair #45 - the roundup!
