Salad with black eyed beans


This recipe was an inspiration from a man who wanted to make a statement for simple and tasty food; it doesn’t have to be necessarily good looking to be delicious. Since all ingredients match just put them all together in a bowl and go! Go, move on. Actually, when was the last time that you said to yourselves ‘Go, move on’, when was the last time that you took a brave decision? And what was that? How did it made you feel? What remained and what changed after that? My most recent brave decision was a while ago. When I decided to ‘get over myself’, again and again and for all the times that I will need to do it. It was when I decided to smile more, be direct and face the music, take life as it comes but don’t surrender for less than I deserve and keep cooking. Don’t fight life, just keep your eyes open, let it bring you what it is that will bring you; whatever comes is for the best.


the recipe



  • 150gr. black eyed beans
  • 150gr. green salad
  • 50gr. rice
  • 2 tomatoes
  • 2 beets
  • 2 carrots
  • 2 spring onions
  • 1 red pepper
  • olive oil
  • juice from half lemon
  • salt
  • black pepper



  • Boil the beans and the rice separately and drain them.
  • Chop the green salad, the spring onions, grate the carrots, cut the tomatoes and the raw beets in medium-small pieces and put them all in a bowl.
  • Add the beans, rice, olive oil, lemon, salt, pepper and mix well…

Enjoy !



  • You can use red cabbage instead of the green salad or put 75r. of both.
  • Even though this is a salad, it is a very full dish because of the beans protein and so you can enjoy it either as dinner with some fish or light lunch.
