Chimichurri and borlotti bean salad with sun-dried tomatoes
Updated: Sep 2, 2018
I love the combination of all the herbs and lemon zest in this salad, so fresh and yummy. Borlotti beans are full of protein, which is an essential nutrient which helps form the structural component of body tissues and building muscle plus one cup of borlotti beans contains 21 percent of the recommended amount of iron per day.
This is quite a summery salad though we make it year round perhaps to brighten up a grey winters day.
Thyme medium bunch, leaves picked
Oregano medium bunch, leaves picked
Parsley medium bunch, leaves picked
Sage leaves, about 10
Coriander medium bunch, including stalks
Small bunch of mint
Zest of a lemon
Juice of a lemon
Garlic, 2 cloves
Rapeseed oils 2 tbsp
Toasted cumin seeds 1tbs
Salt and pepper to taste
Borlotti beans, 2 cans rinsed
Sweet red peppers 2, diced
Cucumber 1/2, diced

Making chimichurri this way is so easy. Simply put all the herbs, lemon zest, lemon juice, garlic, rapeseed oil and cumin in a food processor and blitz together.
Then mix in a bowl with the borlotti beans red pepper, cucumber and sun dried tomatoes and season to taste. So easy and delicious with a crusty piece of sourdough bread. .
Eat, enjoy and spread the plant vibes.
