I adore this Avocado Pea Fine Bean Salad dish. I have actually re-tweaked it since it first introduced it on this site. Sweet succulent garden peas are an excellent source of folic acid, particularly beneficial for pregnant women.

Ingredients

  • ½ onion, shredded
  • 3tbs extra virgin olive oil
  • 4 gloves of garlic, sliced finely
  • 200g fresh garden peas from pod
  • 200g green beans
  • 1 chilli (optional)
  • 1 avocado
  • ½ lime, freshly squeezed
  • 3 to 4 mint leaves, finely chopped

Instructions

  1. In a frying pan, sauté the shredded onion in a teaspoon of olive oil until the onion start to brown and then remove from the heat. Set to one side.
  2. Top tip – I don’t want to flavour the salad with the onion other than to garnish.
  3. In a saucepan, fry the garlic in the remaining oil until the garlic turns brown.
  4. Add the garden peas and fine beans and cook for a couple of minutes. If you decide to add the optional chilli then add for a couple of more minutes of further cooking.
  5. Switch off the heat and combine in the avocado, lime juice and chopped mint (leaving a few to one side to garnish).
  6. Just before serving garnish with the onion and mint leaves.
