three bean salad

This is a perfect lunch that you can have if you feel you have been picking up a few pounds this winter. It’s nutritious and filling and is a weight watcher recommended recipe.
What you need

1 tin black beans
1 tin kidney beans
1 tin garbanzo beans
Pinch of black pepper
1 small onion chopped
2 teaspoons mustard
A couple of fresh thyme leaves
75ml fresh orange juice
Squeeze of lemon
Splash of water

The process

Pour the canned beans into a sieve or colander and rinse under cold water.

Place everything else in a bowl and whisk them together to form a nice dressing. taste and add pepper if needed.

Add the beans to the dressing and toss them around to coat the beans nicely.

That’s it, you are done.

We added a few chickpeas and some blanched green beans and corn kernels for a little variety and color.

This recipe also serves as a really nice side salad to a curry, just add a tablespoon of plain yogurt to the dressing.

    I’m so glad you enjoyed, you can get garbanzo beans at a deli but really any beans will do and it’s really about what you like.
