Green bean & sprouting broccoli salad

I love this dish as it’s the base to so many options, you can sprinkle your favorite chesses over it and stir in cherry tomatoes or serve as it is with your favorite fish or meat, you can also stir quinoa or brown rice through it – it’s great and I use it a lot

Serves 4
Write a review
  1. 200g Green beans
  2. 200g Sprouting broccoli, normal is fine if you can get sprouting
  3. Tbsp Olive oil
  4. Tbsp Balsamic vinegar and more or less to taste
  5. Sprinkle Nigella seeds (optional)
  6. Tbsp Pumpkin seeds
  7. Salt and pepper to taste
  1. Cut the veg into about 1 inch pieces
  2. Get a pan of water boiling add the green beans, once you get to a boil add the broccoli
  3. Boil for 2 - 3 minutes until the veg is just blanched and still has a good bite.
  4. Drain and set aside in a bowl of cold water
  5. Place the pumpkin seeds in a dry nonstick frying pan and move around over a medium heat until they start to toast, keep an eye on them and transfer to a bowl once ready as the heat of the pan can burn them and they will go bitter.
  6. Mix together the olive oil, balsamic vinegar, nigella seeds, pumpkin seeds and seasoning.
  7. Drain the veg and shake off the excess water
  8. Add all ingredients together and serve either as a side dish or add through cherry tomatoes and sprinkle with your favorite cheese about 15 - 20 grams per person - this is a nice lunch.
  1. If you like a citrus hit add a squeeze of lemon or lime, or if you like it hot add some dry chilli flakes or fresh chilli
