    Good for: Calcium, fibre, folate, iron, protein and zinc 

    Ingredients

    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

    Method

    • 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.
