VEGAN PACKED LUNCH RECIPE IDEA:
AVOCADO, BUTTER BEAN, ASPARAGUS AND CUCUMBER SALAD
- 1/2 cucumber
- 1 can of butter/lima beans
- 5 stalks of asparagus
- 1 avocado
- favorite dressing / pesto
- baby tomatoes (nice extra)
This salad is so easy and so good! Perfect for a long day of travel or a day at the office. I like making this the day before, so the salad soaks up the flavours of the dressing.
Start by placing the asparagus in boiling water for 3-4 minutes, once tender remove and let it cool down. Then chop up avocado, cucumber and asparagus. Throw all ingredients into your bowl or lunch box of choice and cover in your favorite dressing. Personally I love adding a big spoon of vegan pesto with some lemon juice and salt and pepper. It’s a great combo. For extra juiciness, baby tomatoes are a great addition.
This beautiful meal is packed with folate, vitamins A, C, E and K and will keep you feeling full and satisfied for hours thanks to all the fibre. Additionally the asparagus and avocado are especially rich in glutathione, a detoxifying compound that helps break down carcinogens and other harmful compounds like free radicals. It’s a real treat for your body and absolutely delicious. Please give it a try, your tummy will thank you.
