Think you've never heard of pulses? Think again. Chances are you're eating these protein- and fiber-packed superfoods more often than you think. That's because pulse is really just a fancy word for the edible seeds of legumes (think beans, chickpeas, lentils, and dry peas). And if you're not eating them, you probably should be—they're not only good for you, they're also one of the most versatile, affordable, and sustainable foods you can have in your pantry.
