Beans & Coriander Salad

Kidney beans and chickpeas are incredibly nutritious and filling. Two cups provides your entire daily dietary requirement of fibre and when we combine chickpeas with heathy fats such as olive oil, it actually enhances nutrient absorption. Coriander really makes this salad taste awesome and is packed full of vitamin C and vitamin K.

Preparation time: 15 minutes

Ingredients (serves 4 people)

  • 1 cans of pre-cooked chickpeas
  • 1 can of pre-cooked kidney beans

  1. Drain the kidney beans and chickpeas, then wash with cold water before placing in a large bowl.
