Watching the skies with a worried face this evening. Tomorrow myself and 19 others (mixture of pupils and staff) are mountain-biking around Loch Moire. Did a trial run on Monday. It was incredibly beautiful and very muddy. What we do not need this evening is rain. And if there’s anyone out there who can control the wind: less of that would be nice too!
I appear to be in pulsey place at the moment. Just can’t get enough of those peas, beans and lentils. Plus, I really like to say “butter bean”. Butter bean, butter bean, butter bean. Lovely.
Butter Bean Salad
2 tins of butter beans, drained & rinsed
2 tbspn chopped chives
1 bell pepper (not green), seeded and chopped
1 lemon, juice and zest
4 tbspn extra virgin olive oil
1 clove of garlic, crushed
2 tbspn chopped fresh sage (I like the purple stuff)
- Put everything in a bowl and mix it gently with your hands!
- Leave for 30 mins for flavours to infuse.
