Bean Salad

Posted by Sunsweet - Thursday, June 09, 2016

Summer-time. The living should be easy. For people with IBS Constipation, that may not be the case. Produced with IBS Network UK, our booklet, ‘Diet for Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) Constipation’ has lots of dietary tips and recipes. Like our super-flexible Bean Salad recipe. Use your favourite salad leaves, as a base. Top with a can of mixed beans. And then add chopped veggies for a multi-coloured, multi-textured meal. Easy!

Ingredients

Mixed salad leaves 
Tin mixed beans, washed
Tomato, chopped
Cucumber, chopped
Avocado, peeled pitted and diced
Carrot, grated
Feta cheese if desired
Dressing: vinegars, herbs, spices
Seeds: linseed (flax), sunflower, sesame, pumpkin, chia
Optional side: Sweet potato jacket, wholegrain rice, quinoa, couscous, wholemeal bread

Instructions

  1. Make up your own salad using any variety of what is listed and other preferred options. The beans and seeds add a great deal of fibre so go carefully at first with smaller portions to get used to your own tolerance levels.
  2. In a bowl, mix together the leaves, beans, tomato, cucumber, avocado, grated carrot and feta.
  3. Add the dressing of your choice and sprinkle seeds on top.
