Spicy Black Bean, Feta & Roasted Vegetable Salad

Keep a finger on your healthy, happy pulse with this Spicy Black Bean, Feta and Roasted Vegetable Salad.

Black bean’s are pulses packed with fiber, potassium, folate, vitamin B6 and have a high phytonutrient content. The fiber content helps lower the total amount of cholesterol in the blood, decreasing the risk of heart disease (obviously you need to also live a healthy lifestyle)!


This recipe is perfect on it’s own, but I prefer to pair it up with Spicy Pan Fried Polenta. Turn up the heat on the chili content if you like it hot, otherwise enjoy a mild kick and a flavour filled medley of all things good for you.
