Full Of Beans

I am a lover of beans. In the bean kingdom there are many varieties of beans both fresh and dry providing you with a great source of dietary fibre, protein, vitamins and minerals. This dish is vibrant in colour and will improve vitality and your overall health.


1 medium size bunch of green beans

1 medium size bunch of yellow butter beans

6 green snake beans

6 red snake beans

1/2 cup red kidney beans

1/2 cup edamame beans

1/2 medium size red onion thinly sliced

1 small bunch fresh coriander or Italian flat leaf parsley chopped

Juice of 1 lemon

3 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil

1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar

salt to taste


*Trim beans and cut into lengths you desire.

*Bring a pot of water to the boil add prepared beans and 1/2 teaspoon of salt.

*Cook 2 to 3 minutes, drain water from beans and transfer to a bowl filled with ice water to stop them over cooking and preserve their crunch. Once cool drain the beans.

*Place beans in a bowl and add kidney beans and edamame beans.

*Add to the beans thinly sliced red onion and chopped coriander.

*For the dressing, in a separate bowl add freshly squeezed lemon juice, extra virgin olive oil, apple cider vinegar and salt.
