Sprouted Three Bean Salad Recipe
1 cup of dried Sprouted beans, cooked
3 stalks celery, chopped with leaves
1 large cucumber, sliced and halved
1 avocado, chopped
Newman's Organic Zesty Italian Dressing
(All Ingredients are Organic)
This was super easy to make. All the vegetables were cut up while the beans were boiling.
Beans: Combine one cup of truroots sprouted beans and 3 cups water in to a medium pan. Bring to boiling point over medium heat. Reduce heat and simmer for 5 minutes. Remove from heat and let stand for another 10 minutes. The beans will be soft but not mushy. I drained any leftover water and added the rest of the ingredients into a bowl. This salad even tasted great the day after!
I really enjoyed this as a lunch and dinner option that was packed with protein, vitamins, and fiber, which was a great source of energy and kept me full.
Sprouted beans before drained.
In this recipe I used the beans in a salad. You can make a protein spread or dip by pureeing the beans with a little olive oil and salt, or with rice and spices like a pilaf.
I picked this bag up at Costco for $7.95 and was well worth the price! I am making many creative dishes and getting in a great tasting protein rich in fiber!
