Pulses are any kind of peas and beans, so kidney beans and black eyed peas both count.

Okay thank you, another question if you don't mind grin I've got the casserole with the vegetables all sort of par boiled in there and am going to heat it up again and add the kidney beans gravy granules and chopped tomatoes to let it thicken. How long would this take should I heat it for say 30 minutes?

should be unless it's a really big casserole. get a packet of cornflour. if it doesnt thicken you add this to some of the liquid to thicken it. mash potatoe works too smile
