VEGAN THREE BEAN SALAD


Vegan Three Bean Salad
Because Mr Vegan is a vegan and protein at mealtimes is always an issue, I decided we need to eat more beans. We already use them in soups, curries and chillis but, up until now, have not really incorporated them into salads. I took a pea salad recipe off Wise Móna's fantastic blog as a starting off point and made this delicious Three Bean Salad today.
Helper Juno with the beans
Tesco very handily sell a tin of mixed beans (cannellini, adzuki & flageolet) and I used that. You can, of course, cook your own dried beans.

INGREDIENTS
  • 400g tin of mixed beans
  • 150g sweetcorn
  • 1 carrot (grated)
  • 1 small onion – chopped small
  • handful roughly chopped coriander
  • 1 clove of garlic (minced)
  • half tsp sugar
  • 15 ml olive oil
  • 15 ml red wine vinegar
 METHOD
  • Mix the beans, sweetcorn, onion and carrot in a big bowl
  • In a small bowl mix the oil, sugar, vinegar and garlic
  • Mix dressing into salad then add the coriander

Hey - nice recipe and thanks for the link to the site Nuala. We made a lovely bean/garlic/tomato dish last night - I was thinking of you as it was vegan/veggie friendly so would work for your house. Will blog it soon.
