My Legume Love Affair (MLLA) # 61 : The Round-Up!

T
his is the round-up of the 61st edition of My Legume Love Affair (MLLA), which means that there have been 60 editions previously. It also means that, given the enthusiastic response this event evokes in the food blog world every month, people do indeed love their legumes a lot!

It’s nice to see that the 61st edition of MLLA also brought out the best in the lentil world once again, and I’m happy to present the round-up. I have tried to categorise the submission under various headings for easy reference but otherwise the submission have been presented no particular order.
