Asian Mixed Bean Salad


  • 200g uncooked beetroot
  • 40g spinach or other dark leafy green
  • 1 carrot
  • 120g green beans
  • 100g sugar snap peas
  • 4g fresh dill
  • 1 sprig fresh mint
  • 160g black eyed beans (cooked and drained)
  • 1 tblspoon sesame seeds
  • coconut oil
  • Sliced chili for garnish.
  • Dressing:
  • 1 tbsp tahini
  • 2 tbsp sweet miso
  • 3 tbsp water

Pre-heat oven to 350 F.

Peal and dice the beetroot into 2 cm cubes. Toss in 1 tbsp of coconut oil and put into the oven for 30 minutes or until soft.

In the meantime boil a pan of water, once at a rolling boil drop the sugar snap peas and green beans for 1-2 minutes to blanch until soft but still with a crunch. Drain the water and put under cold running water for 1 minute to refresh them. Grate the carrot and roughly chop the herbs. Slice the beans and peas on a diagonal. Mix all together with fresh herbs, keeping enough aside to sprinkle over the top for garnish.

Take the beetroot out of the oven and put to one side to cool slightly.

To make the dressing mix all the dressing ingredients in either a blender or a hand whisk. The tahini will curdle slightly but just keep stirring and it will incorporate. To serve put a bed of salad with the rest of the ingredients in the bowl over the top and drizzle with dressing, sprinkle with remaining herbs and sliced chili.
