May 11, 2016

It’s all about the beans

In line with the superfoods theme of the week, the main attraction here is the bean. Full of nutrients for you and your baby, beans are the perfect centrepiece for your dish. This one is from Real Simple.


Serves: 8
Time: 20 minutes prep
Good for: Calcium, fibre, folate, iron, protein and zinc 


¾ cup nuts (such as pecans, pistachios, or pine nuts)
3 tbsp olive oil
2 tbsp lemon juice
Salt and black pepper
5 oz rocket
15.5 oz cannellini beans, drained
1 ½ cups seedless red grapes, halved


• Heat oven to 180ºC or gas mark 4. Spread the nuts on a rimmed baking sheet and toast, tossing occasionally until fragrant, for 4-6 minutes. Let cool, then coarsely chop.
• Meanwhile, whisk together the oil, lemon juice, and ½ teaspoon each of salt and pepper in a large bowl. Add the rocket, beans, grapes and nuts and toss to combine. Serve immediately.

And that’s that! Buon appetito!
