Three Bean Salad with Feta and Turmeric Potatoes

This is another recipe post that features my amazing salad tub (you can find a similar one here). I love this salad, its not the quickest to put together but it's super healthy and looks like sunshine on a plate. I absolutely love snap peas as well, they remind me of trips out to pick your own when we were younger and munching them in the back seat of the car on the way home. 

What you'll need:

  • 5 tbsp olive oil
  • 5 broad bean pods
  • A handful of soy beans
  • As many snap peas as you like
  • 1/2 sweet onion
  • 100g feta cheese
  • 4 cherry tomatoes
  • 1/2 tsp sugar
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 4 new potatoes
  • 1 tsp turmeric
  • 25g butter
  • A handful of fresh basil
  • A handful of fresh chives
(Serves 1)

Heat 1 tablespoons of oil in a pan and gently fry the broad beans and onions for just over 5 minutes until the onions have softened. Remove from the heat and place on a paper towel to soak up any excess oil.

Slice the tomatoes in half and put on a plate. Sprinkle over the sugar and salt and microwave for 5 minutes (watch the sugar doesn't burn!). Remove from the microwave and drizzle over the remaining olive oil and leave to soak. 

Part-boil the potatoes in water seasoned with turmeric and then drain and fry in the butter for 5 minutes. Chop your herbs. 

Arrange all the bits in the tupperware, you can layer the beans and potatoes and then keep the herbs, cheese and olive oil tomatoes separate. 

Enjoy! x
