So I decided to make a new special for the Nuffield this week.. and made a light and refreshing simple summer salad for those hot summer days (shame my timing wasn’t great with the weather!) A few of my friends have starting asking me to make them salads too so this one was prepared in my own kitchen at home. So this salad also features my own homemade baked falafels & homemade carrot humus. Its so easy to prepare & packed with plant based goodness.
1 pack of green beans
Bunch of fresh asparagus
Small bowl of frozen beans, (defrosted)
2 small ripe avocados
Approx 20 small strawberries
Freshly chopped basil & mint to taste
Small bag of fresh rocket, washed
S & P to taste.
Cook quinoa & allow to cool
Steam the green beans & asparagus for 3-4 mins and refresh quickly under cold water
Stir green veg, avocados and strawberries and herbs into the quinoa & dress with a little olive oil & balsamic.
Serve on bed of rocket with protein of your choice.
(I like to serve with humus & falafels for a great plant based lunch as shown here!)
