I made this white bean strawberry spinach salad with homemade miso ginger dressing for a project for @bestofvegan recently and as someone who used to hate salads, I couldn’t get enough of it;) I’ve never understood salads that are basically just iceberg lettuce with ice cold tomato and cucumber slices (my childhood nightmare) and literally nothing else, so when I make salads now, I make sure that my junk food loving inner child would eat and actually like them too. You can find this and 2 other super easy new recipes via the link in my bio (@veganreset) & sharing this one here too (see below). And for those that no salad will ever convince, check out my account @idontwantsalad ;)
White Bean Strawberry Spinach Salad with Homemade Miso Ginger Dressing💜
yield: 2 servings
prep time: 10 minutes.
cook time: 7 minutes.
total time: 17 minutes.
Herbed White Beans ingredients:
1 can of white beans (cannellini or butter beans), drained and rinsed
1/4 cup pine nuts
2 tsp olive oil for cooking
1 – 1 1/2 tsp dried parsley
1 tsp minced onion flakes
1/3 tsp coarse black pepper
1/2 tsp garlic salt (or to taste)
2 spring onions, chopped, the white part only
3-4 cups fresh baby spinach
1 ripe avocado, peeled and cubed
2 radishes, thinly sliced
1 cup fresh strawberries, sliced or quartered
2 spring onions, chopped, the green part only
1/2 lemon, the juice
Optional topping: chives
2 tbsp chickpea miso paste
1 tbsp lemon juice
1/4 cup water
1 tbsp olive oil
2 tbsp maple syrup
1/3 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp ground (or fresh) ginger
Start by toasting the pine nuts in about 1/2 tsp oil in a pan over medium heat for 2 minutes, then add all other herbed white bean ingredients and cook for about 3-5 more minutes. If your stove top gets very hot, be sure to reduce the heat to low-medium. Then set aside to let the beans cool down a little.
In the meantime, make the dressing by mixing all ingredients in a small bowl using a whisk or a fork.
Lastly, mix the beans with the salad ingredients and serve with the miso ginger dressing.
