I am surprised how many people get stumped if they have to prepare a protein rich salad as a main for a vegan when the rest are having a barbecue. Very often it is just a standard green salad and if you are lucky maybe a vegan burger (store bought). There are a variety of beans and grains that offer high quality nutrition and personally think you can even make yummy vegan homemade burgers with a little planning.
This salad is colourful, fresh and absolutely delightful that eating a bowl won’t be that hard!
1 x 400g tin of brown lentils, rinsed and drained well
Barbecues and salads go hand in hand. Being a vegetarian, I am always experimenting with flavour combinations for protein packed salads that are a bit more than tossing leaves from a bag. This is an interesting and easy salad which works well for school /work lunches.
2 x 400g tins butter beans, drained and rinsed well
2-3 large sticks celery, peeled and sliced at an angle
