Five Bean Salad Soup

Its still my birthday week so I am still using my present and “Nessie” is turning out to be a real boon. Anyway after attending Salute 2017, and then having a light Brazilian lunch at Cabana followed by a sobering dose of West Ham United football at the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park or the London Stadium we saw Pixie Lott perform “Baby”! After all of that I was ready for some soup.


Five Bean Salad is my answer to a real Salad! No mucking around with fashionable leaf, No really fattening dressing to give it a bit of flavour and None of that boiled up Quinoa (we know its pronounced quin”o”ahh but they keep on saying keenwah!) anyway lots of healthy veg and beans in a Soupy Salad!
