healthy fast food - sweet & sour BEANS
It's been another busy week here at Nourished by Nature! I was running another workshop for the lovely students at Glasgow University last night and the focus of the workshop was Healthy Fast Food.
We made lots of healthy dishes including Baked Sweet Potatoes with hummus and winter coleslaw, Beetroot Marinara with Courgetti, Lentil Bolgnese, Curried Veggie Filo Parcels Spicy Couscous and Sweet & Sour Beans.
The beans was actually the easiest recipe and the most popular so I thought I'd share the recipe so you too could enjoy some healthy fast food this weekend!
Beans are literally the perfect food, they can lower cholesterol, protect your heart, balance your blood sugar making you feel fuller for longer and improve your digestion. This is a brilliant and incredibly easy dish I adapted from a macrobiotic recipe, originally using adzuki beans. It works well with tinned kidney beans and literally takes minutes to make! The hardest bit is chopping the onions! Don’t use cheap soy sauce which is artificially flavoured with MSG and really bad for your health. Shoyu and tamari are naturally fermented healthy alternatives. Clearspring do a good range of organic sauces. This is delicious served with some brown rice and simply steamed greens for a healthy, balanced meal which will support every system in your body. Give it a go, your body will thank you!

Yes it really is delicious Jenna, just had it for dinner with some lovely brown rice. I added a big handful of spinach since I had some to use up! Any excuse to add greens, love them!
