Whole Grain and Bean Salad

Whole Grain and Bean Salad
Recipe By: Navid

About this Recipe:

Navid: While whole grains such as barley, oatmeal or brown rice are excellent sources of fibers and amino acids, beans are known for their protein contents as well as vitamins and minerals. Combining these two nutritious ingredients with some good olive oil, fresh herbs and a splash of lemon juice, makes a delicious and healthy dish.

Main Ingredients:

Whole Grain: 3/4 cup of your choice (barley, brown rice or oatmeal)
Beans: 1 cup of your choice (soybeans, chick beans, red kidney beans or Romano beans)
Fresh Cilantro: 1 tbsp chopped, or replace with parsley
Fresh Mint: 1 tbsp chopped
Lemon: juice of 1/2
Olive Oil: 1 tbsp
Vinegar: 1 tsp


1. Cook the whole grains in your rice cooker with water and some salt. After cooking, drain and wash them with cold water.

2. Meanwhile, boil the beans in water with some salt for 45 min or until completely cooked (alternatively, for soybeans, you can steam them). Let them cool.

3. Blend the whole grains, beans and herbs. Season with salt and pepper.

4. Drizzle over with olive oil, lemon juice and vinegar. Mix well.

5. Leave in the fridge for 30 min before serving.
