Beans and rice go together really well, and salad is almost always a healthy choice, so what better than a bean and rice salad.
This is another recipe from Richard & Sandra Barnett who run a great vegetarian Bed & Breakfast in the New Forest (an English national park in Hampshire).
100g dried kidney beans – or a can of kidney beans
100g of brown rice
2 cloves of garlic (crushed)
1 onion (chopped)
1 carrot (grated)
1 stick of celery (chopped)
1 red or green pepper (chopped)
2 tomatoes (chopped)
2 leaves of basil
Half a cup of grated parmesan cheese (or vegan parmesan alternative.)
