Gluten free pasta salad - avocado & beans

Published 26 February, 2007

I used to hate salads, because lettuce just doesn't fill you up. Then someone told me you don't have to put lettuce in salads and kaboom! Filling salads are on the menu.

Properly filling gluten free salad recipe

200g/7oz gluten free pasta (spirals or penne is best)
400g/14oz tin of mixed beans - black eye beans, kidney beans, pinto beans etc
Handful diced cucumber
1 medium avocado, diced
Juice of 1/2 lemon
3 tbsps chopped basil
3 tbsps toasted sunflower seeds (toast on dry pan until light brown)
Salt and ground black pepper to taste.

Stir the avocado and lemon juice together. Then add all ingredients to a bowl and mix thoroughly. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Much it all down - have consideration for your living companions and chew those beans properly now!

Gluten free salad, and oh so healthy.
