Sprouted beans and Granny smith salad

After a week-long break I am here again happily cooking (I mean cooking something new to share), photographing 🙂 nothing seems to bring more happiness. Blogging seems to have grown into me though it’s not even a year into this wonderful internet space of mine. It’s just so comforting but then a daily run on food styling and photography seems not possible since I start running out of ideas. Hence a diligent gap between each post made more sense. 
We have never survived on salads over the weekend. I had the green gram sitting in my pantry and never put to use. I came across the recipe on kirantarundotcom on how to sprout the beans. That’s how the sprouted beans made its way into my kitchen. So decided to go green for lunch. The Granny smith added a nice sourness to the salad. With a simple dressing it was all so perfect, crunchy and healthy salad. I say GO GREEN..:)

You need –
  • Sprouted beans – 1 cup
  • Granny smith – 1, grated
  • Tomato – 1, de-seeded and finely chopped
  • Shallots – finely chopped, 2 tablespoons
  • 2 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • Juice of ½ lemon
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper – as per taste.
  • Parsley – finely chopped

How to –

In a mixing bowl, add the sprouted beans, grated apple, tomato, shallots, parsley. Toss well.

In a small bowl, beat the oil, lemon juice. Season with salt and pepper. Drizzle the dressing 
over the salad. Toss well.

Refrigerate for 30 minutes before you serve.

  1. Your visuals are still stunning as ever and you have not lost touch on your creative ways of taking the shots. In fact, I admire how you capture many different angles and different styles of pictures. I don't have the time to take such shots and in fact, some days blogging can be tiring after a hard days of work in the office and more chores at home.

    Simplicity about this salad is so alive as the pictures says it all. Great as a side or on its own.

  2. I don't know u were new to blogging,with so many FB fans and stunning pics and wonderful presentation it's hard to believe..We All should go green at least once in a while for a healthy living..this would fit into that healthy eating category 🙂
