    Spinach Pasta Salad (serves 2-3)

     

    Although they're optional, garbanzo beans and walnuts make this salad especially good.

     

    Food you'll need:

    3 cups cooked spinach rotelle (spiral pasta), cooled 3/4 cup water, distilled preferred 1 & 1/2 tablespoons lemon juice 1/2 cup fresh spinach, torn into bite-sized pieces 1/2 cup cooked garbanzo beans, optional 1/2 cup sliced black or Greek olives 1/2 cup chopped walnut pieces, optional

     

    Preparation (10 minutes) Stir ingredients together in large bowl and serve immediately.

      Last night I made black bean chilli:

       

      2 chopped onions

      4 crushed cloves of garlic

       

      Cook for 5 mins in oil

       

      3 tbsp mild chilli powder (I used hot!)

      3 tbsp ground cumin

       

      Cook for a few more mins

       

      Add 2 tins of chopped tomatoes and seasoning. Cook for 10 mins

       

      Add 2 drained and rinsed tins of black beans. Cook for a further 10 mins.

       

      Serve with rice.

       

      FI didn't even realise there was no meat in it until I told him!
