Fresh Three-Bean Salad

Since my last recipe was fairly rich in calories it seemed only fair to give my body a rest from all the fat and carbohydrates and prepare something a little more forgiving. During our most recent food shop we picked up 3 large bags of dried pulses; pinto beans; kidney beans and borlotti beans. Naturally I jumped at the chance of doing something extremely healthy with such wonderful ingredients. This salad is exceedingly fresh and has a taste not dissimilar to a recipe for Tabbouleh I posted not long ago. It is perfect eaten on its own, as a snack, or as a side dish – perhaps it would do rather well paired with a Mexican main.

Black Bean and Kidney Bean Burgers

It would appear that recently this blog has unintentionally taken a rather vegetarian slant. The reason for this is that I’ve had to start cooking with whatever is to hand, rather than planning meals properly, due to the fact I now live ‘at home’ and work fairly unpredictable hours. However, fear not my carnivorous friends, meat is on the way – I have a number of top notch recipes for you flesh lovers tucked away just under the hem of my sleeve. In actual fact, there would have been such a recipe yesterday if someone, and I’m not naming names, had remembered to defrost the damn chicken.
