Simple & Easy Bean And Herb Salad!

 

 

I’ve had many people ask me for this specific bean salad recipe so I thought I’d just post it here for everyone. I make many different types of bean salads but this is one of my favourite ones. It’s always a hit with family and friends! I use chickpeas and black beans in this salad but the bean possibilities are endless so use whatever you have on hand. I love how you can use whatever staple ingredients you have at home and create a lovely protein packed salad super fast!  I like adding chopped bell peppers into it because it adds a pop of colour to the salad and adds another element of great taste as well. For me fresh parsley is a must for bean salad so I add in a lot of it! I like to top my salad with healthy hemp hearts to finish it off.

You will need:

  • 2  – 19 oz  can of black beans
  • 1 – 28 oz large can of chickpeas

  • handful of parsley, I use two handfuls 🙂
  • large bowl or large container

 

Method:

  1. Mince the garlic
  2. Open up the cans of beans and rinse, rinse, rinse them very well!!!
  3. Add beans to your bowl or sealable container and toss in the garlic
  4. Drizzle with a 3 tbsp.’s of extra virgin olive oil and 3 tbsp.’s of apple cider vinegar. Adjust to desired taste. Add more olive oil or ACV if you need depending on how strong you want the flavors to be.
  5. Season with Himalayan salt and black pepper and add the parsley.
  6. Mix well and top with 3 – 4 tbsp. of hemp hearts on top.

 

* I keep my bean & herb salad in the fridge to let the flavors marry for a while before serving. The longer it sits the better it will taste!!!*

 

Enjoy!
