Green bean, rice and almond salad

This recipe is from The French Market Cookbook by Clotilde Dusoulier – she has a great blog chocolateandzucchine.com

900g green beans

3 tablespoons almond butter

3 tablespoons olive oil

3 tablespoons lemon juice

1 tablespoon cider vinegar

1 teaspoon salt

3 cups cooked rice, or a mix of brown rice, quinoa, etc (I use the pre cooked sachets you can get in the supermarket if I am short of time)

2/3 cups toasted almonds – I use flaked

1 cup chopped fresh parsley

Ground black pepper to taste

 

Steam the green beans (a fast alternative is to wash them, top and tail them then cut in half, and then put into a microwave safe dish, cover with plastic film and cook on high for a couple of minutes – then rinse under cold water).

Make dressing in a salad bowl: whisk together almond butter, olive oil, lemon juice, vinegar, and salt.

Add the green beans and coat in the dressing.  Add rice, parsley and seasoning.  Serve.

 

I topped with some sliced fresh figs because I like them
