Ingredients

  • 400 g (14 ounce) can of cannellini beans See Note 1
  • 1 small garlic clove - minced/finely chopped
  • ½ red capsicum/bell pepper - small dice
  • ¼ red onion - finely chopped
  • 3 tablespoon parsley - roughly chopped See Note 2
  • 3 teaspoon lemon juice See Note 3
  • 2 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil See Note 2
  • sea salt and freshly ground black pepper - to taste

Instructions

  • Rinse and drain your cannellini beans and add to a bowl.
  • Finely dice your onion, chop your capsicum into small cubes and roughly chop the parsley.
    Add to the bowl with the beans, along with the finely minced garlic.
  • Season with salt, pepper, olive oil and lemon juice.
  • Mix the White Bean Salsa carefully to ensure everything is well combined, and check that everything is to your taste.

Notes

  1. I use a can of cannellini beans for this recipe, which I rinse and drain well. You can also use dried beans which you have soaked and cooked.
  2. The Australian tablespoon is 20 ml or 4 teaspoons. In many other countries, the tablespoon is 15 ml or 3 teaspoons. You may need to adjust your measurements accordingly.
  3. For the best flavour, use freshly squeezed lemon juice.
  4. Please note, the nutritional information is calculated on 2 servings as a side dish. This is quite a generous serving - if you were enjoying it as an appetiser with corn chips, it would more likely serve 4 people. The nutritional information is an estimate only and does not include what the salsa is served with.
