I believe, if there are so many great recipes out there, why should i re-invent the wheel time and again. I prefer to use existing ones and perhaps add, change or delete a few things to make it total metabolic balance proof! Like with this one, i deleted the feta cheese from the original  recipe from BBC Good Food, to make it a one protein dish with only black beans in it. Very satisfying, easy to make, great for on the go, just the recipe that i love. And, not to forget, with a great flavour!

400 g can black beans drained and rinsed

1 tomato roughly chopped

1⁄4 red onion roughly chopped

1⁄2 avocado chopped


For the chimichurri

1 large handful coriander

1 large handful parsley

2 tbsp sherry vinegar or white wine vinegar

2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil

1⁄2 garlic clove roughly chopped

Whizz all the chimichurri ingredients together in a blender or the small bowl of a food processor, until combined. Season to taste and set aside.

In a bowl or plastic container toss together all the salad ingredients. Drizzle over the dressing, or keep it separate in a small jar to stir through the salad just before eating.
