This is an ideal snack for the morning hours or early evening. It’s packed with complex carbohydrates, good quality protein and some amazing soluble & insoluble fibre. Its highly refreshing, and best of all, totally alkaline in nature!
Handful of mixed beans- red kidney beans, white kidney beans, chickpeas
Few coriander leaves
Salt and freshly ground pepper to taste
Soak the beans overnight and then cook them in a pressure cooker for a few mins until they are soft. Strain the beans into an empty bowl and refrigerate for an hour. This process can be done beforehand so keep the beans ready. A larger quantity can be boiled and kept in the fridge for future use.
Next, dice the tomato & cucumber into small pieces, mince the onion and coriander and mix all these ingredients along with the beans in the same bowl. Add lemon, salt and the freshly ground black pepper for taste. Mix all the ingredients. Enjoy your mixed bean salad!
