STANDING APART, TOGETHER.

This impossibly easy recipe is a tasty new spin on a classic — BEAN SALAD! It’s really good for you and really tasty. This recipe is perfect for “Social Distancing” because it’s loaded with a potent trifecta of ingredients guaranteed to keep most people you encounter at least 6 feet away from you — beans, raw garlic and raw onion.

This recipe has a bit of an Asian and Middle Eastern twist to it. It’s richer than standard bean salad, and way more flavourful. We like it on its own or with veggies. It’s full of satiating and energizing slow-burn carbohydrates, good fats and a ton of plant based protein. Pretty much anyone can dig into it because it’s free of major allergens, is gluten free, vegan, grain-free and made entirely with pantry items and familiar condiments.

Remember friends, we’re all in this together, even when we’re standing far apart. Stay healthy, stay safe, and stay frosty.
