Colorful Bean Salad

Are you ready for lunch? Personally I am obsessed with beans. I actually prepare beans as more often as I can. Beans are good for anyone switching to a vegetarian diet. They have favorable qualities, such as a high protein content and an abundance of minerals, vitamins and phytonutrients.

Today I have prepared the borlotti beans (you can use any type of beans) with stir-fried vegetables and arugula.

Servings x 4:

  • 250 gr Borlotti beans
  • White onion
  • 3-4 Carrots
  • Red pepper
  • Parsley to taste
  • Himalayan salt to taste
  • 250 gr Arugula
  • Extra virgin olive oil
  • Apple cider vinegar ( for arugula salad dressing)

Preparation:

Soak the beans overnight, rinse and cook.  Fry the onion add the carrots and red pepper. When the vegetables are ready add parsley and previously cooked beans. Serve with arugula salad on top.

You can replace red pepper with zucchini, mushrooms or corn. Use what you have and be creative.
