EDAMAME BEAN & QUINOA SALAD
A favourite simple and quick salad to make with minimal mess to clear. Lots of different textures within it too, for extra dish-love.
DID YOU KNOW that EDAMAME BEANS are immature soya beans that are still green. Soya is the best source of plant protein as they contain all the essential amino acids.
They also protect against breast cancer as the contain plant oestrogen’s which appear to block the effect of the body’s natural and stronger oestrogen.
QUINOA is a seed that also has good levels of protein, again, including all the amino acids. Quinoa is a useful and healthier alternative to rice. A much healthier alternative to bought mayonnaise is to make your own.
AVOCADO or rapeseed oil are good choices of oil rather than the traditionally used sunflower oil. Coriander leaves add an Asian flavour to any dish and really pep up the levels of iron, magnesium, vitamin C & K.
