Easy Peasy Bean Salad

On , In Recipes

It’s amazing how many people forget about eating beans! They are so nutritious, loaded in protein, fibre, iron and magnesium. And they are super quick and easy to prepare. These can be added to a bed of greens or eaten on their own!


  • 30 ounces Organic Mixed Beans. This equates to 2 x 398ml cans, rinsed & drained (Garbanzo Beans & Black Beans are my fave!).
  • ¼ cup Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • ¼ cup Red Wine Vinegar, Brown Rice Vinegar, or Apple Cider Vinegar
  • 1 TBSP Soy Sauce ( I always use reduced sodium)
  • 2 teaspoons Barley Malt Syrup (option to omit and double maple syrup if allergy or unavailable. I typically leave this out and bump up the maple syrup below)
  • 2 teaspoons organic (real) maple syrup
  • ½ cup finely chopped Green Onions (or fresh chives form the garden!)
  • 1 clove Garlic, pressed
  • 1 teaspoon dried Basil or to taste (fresh is great too if you have it)
  • ½ teaspoon dried Oregano, or to taste (fresh is great too if you have it)


Place all ingredients in a mixing bowl, and toss well. The salad can be served room temperature or it can be refrigerated and marinated 1-2 hours. Will last 3 days in your fridge.
