Luengo, a long tradition in high quality pulses.

Pulses have played an essential role in Mediterranean cuisine for centuries, leaving a profound influence on Spanish gastronomy. From hearty stews to savory rice dishes, pulses such as chickpeas, lentils, and beans are a staple in Spanish cooking and can be found in every region of the country.

The history of pulses.

The cultivation and consumption of pulses can be traced back to the earliest days of agriculture in the Mediterranean. In ancient times, they were crushed and used to make bread, added to soups and purees, and boiled with other vegetables and a drizzle of olive oil. Thanks to their nutritional value, high protein content, and long shelf-life, pulses were often referred to as the "poor man's meat."
