    Default Rice & Beans

    Rice & Beans

    serves 4

    there are endless variations on this: basically just mix up some allotment veg, rice & any beans or chickpeas with some soy sauce or salad dressing.

    150g rice, cooked (Brown Basmati is my favourite)
    veg: red pepper, peas, broad beans, sweetcorn, spring onions, whatever
    100g dried beans/chickpeas, prepped (you can grow chickpeas in UK in a good summer)
    dressing

    Mix everything together.
