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
½ cup sunflower kernels, toasted
1 medium zucchini, sliced thinly
3-4 small radish, sliced thinly
1 red pepper, cored and diced
6-7 spring onion greens, finely chopped
