Vegan Four Bean Salad - High Nutritional Value
Three Bean Salad a must at a South African Braai
A close friend of mine, recently made a comment about me, I think it is my cooking style and the way that I read and devour Cookery Books. Then again, I suppose it is also because I am always taking a recipe that is fairly traditional and putting my distinct stamp on.
This recipe is traditionally a "Three" Bean salad, now becouse I love the flavour and the nutritional value of Chick Peas, with a touch of magic it is now a Four Bean salad.
With the compliments of Jamie Bytes or is it Nigela Oliver, nope it is plan old Just_Rodney, back in the kitchen.
