Spicy Adzuki Salad

Believe it or not, you can get adzuki beans these days in high street supermarkets so there’s no excuse to try this spicy bowl of goodness. The beans are packed full of protein but not as starchy as chickpeas or black beans so the dish is light and refreshing but will keep you feeling full and satisfied all day. A nice simple recipe to kickstart your weekend.


  • 1 can (400g) adzuki beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1 fresh chilli, finely chopped
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 lime juice
  • 1/4 tsp ground ginger
  • 1/4 tsp dried mint
  • 1 handful of fresh basil, roughly chopped
  • Salt


  1. Using the serving dish of choice, mix all the ingredients thoroughly together, season with salt and serve.

Enjoy πŸ™‚
