Warm butter bean and green veg salad 

Hi all! I haven’t posted for a while, so thought I’d kick things off again with an easy, nutritious recipe. In the summer months when it’s as hot as it is today I find it difficult to work up an appetite for much, but this gives me just what I need to keep going throughout the day. 

You will need: 

1 teaspoon of coconut oil 

1 red onion 

Half a courgette 

A large handful of spinach 

1 tin of butter beans, drained 


Salt (pink Himalayan if you have it) 


Finely dice the red onion and the courgette into evenly sized chunks. Heat the coconut oil in a pan and then add the onion and courgette. Sweat down the vegetables until they are a little more translucent in colour. Add the drained butter beans and warm through, before adding the spinach to wilt. This should take about 30 seconds. Season with 2 teaspoons of cumin and the salt and pepper. Serve warm.   

With love and light, 

Ciara x
