OMG, the flavours, the colours! Bright purple lettuce, deep red kidney beans, mixed greens and beautiful ruby pomegranate seeds popping out everywhere.
Cover that in creamy peanut butter, ginger and garlic dressing and now we've got a party, or at least a great lunch, side or picnic dish.
Pomegranates have loads of health benefits, including fighting breast cancer and inflammation. It actually has a unique antioxidant named Punicalagin which makes pomegranate juice antioxidant activity 3 times more potent than red wine or green tea! Here's 12 proven health benefits of pomegranate.
Even better is that everyone likes it, so you don't have to hide it under other food for your friends/family to eat it, like kale.
The kidney beans add protein and fibre. If you feed this to non vegans/vegetarians just make sure not to hang out with them the day after, or at least only in well ventilated spaces.
BTW, if you use dried beans make sure you soak them for 24 hours first with a splash of apple cider vinegar, then drain, add fresh water and boil for a couple of hours.
You don't have to use the peanut butter, ginger and garlic dressing, but we'd really recommend it.
All this can be yours in just 15 minutes! We hope you love it. It's healthy, delicious and simple.
