White Bean Salad

Even after five years of recipe creating and testing, we’re still able to be surprised. In fact, it’s incredibly refreshing when recipes like this white bean salad come along and wow us in an instant.

This recipe is a classic case of the sum being greater than its parts. Hauke threw this one together in our Berlin studio kitchen, and it was love at first bite.

The tangy fresh orange mixed with the soft heat of the mustard was incredibly revitalising after a tough day in the kitchen, and the citrusy flavour was perfect for the summer.

It was also a lot more filling than I expected, in most part down to the beans.

This white bean salad has a lot going for it, and this is a recipe I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend to anybody. The fact that it’s vegan when using agave syrup (instead of honey) also makes it more tempting for many folk.

White beans, brown grains

If it’s taste, fulfillment and good, solid nutrition then you’ve got the right dish. White beans are pretty awesome, and a great source of fiber.

A lot of folk don’t get enough fiber these days, partly due to an abundance of processed foods – white grains in particular are a reason for this.

Swapping white bread and white pasta (a type of refined carb)  for their whole grain cousins could be a big health boost. Beans, like these white beans, are also a great way to get more fiber into your diet.

Convenient food, without the waste

One of the things we strive to show the world at HurryTheFoodUp is that good, nutritious veggie and vegan food shouldn’t be difficult nor time-consuming.

We want to encourage people to try to make their own delicious meals and break away from the convenience food trap.

This lunch ticks all the boxes and takes only ten minutes to prep – with no cooking time! It’s also nice and easy to transport, making it ideal for lunch on the go or at work.

If you normally eat out for lunch then it’s a great way to save some $$$ as well!

This white bean salad has quickly become a firm lunch favourite around here. In fact, I’m off to buy the ingredients again right now. I’d suggest you do, too. Guten appetit!

    As a new vegan, all I can say is, “simply delicious!”

    1. Awesome, and thank you!!

  2. 5 stars
    This was really good, and truly fast, thank you! I have used a mixed-leafs salad instead of lamb’s lettuce – it worked well.

    1. Why not? Good substitute! Thanks for sharing the idea!
