This salad is so easy to prepare. I use red beans, red onions, feta cheese on lambs lettuce and top it with sprouted mung beans. Most of the time I cook raw beans and store them a few days because self-cooked beans have the maximum of fiber and good quality protein as well as no unhealthy additives.
I am a full vegetarian, sometimes vegan, living person. So I need to take care of my balanced budget on protein. Legumes are very rich in high quality protein. I love adding beans and chickpeas to my meals at any time I can.
I love to add some sprouted grains and in my salads because their nutritional value is higher than in non-sprouted grains. Sprouted grains are rich in vitamins B and C as well as folate, fiber, essential amino acids and a variety of antioxidants. You can buy already sprouted grains or sprout them yourself with a sprouting jar or a strainer. You only need to soaked them overnight in water and rinse them with water 2 times a day for 3-4 days. You can see how they starts to sprout. It is amazing.
This salad can be stored in the fridge for up to 3 days. I love to prepare food for a few days because I am a full worker and don’t have the time to cook every day.
