If you’re looking to fill up, super-charge your cells, up your fiber intake, and feel AWESOME for around 300 calories a plate, look no further!
This phenomenal salad uses a strong base of mixed greens (romaine & spinach) combined with the vegan four-bean salad from a previous post, and topped with fresh green onion to create a super heart-healthy, cholesterol-reducing, vitality-restoring super salad!
(Claims not investigated by the FDA. I made all this up so far.)
But seriously folks, this is delicious, and there is so much gorgeous color and fiber here, it might be a challenge to finish the whole plate! And with the vinaigrette from the four bean salad, you don’t even need dressing, which is where a lot of salad calories tend to come from.
So you can feel really super awesome about eating this.
- 4-5 romaine leaves, chopped or torn
- 1 cup fresh spinach
- 1 cup vegan four bean salad
- 2 green onions, chopped
Step 1: Create a giant bed of greens on your plate. The more the merrier!
“Oh no, not more green leafy vegetables!” — Said no one’s internal organs ever.
Step 2: Smother the greens in the bean salad. Chop the green onions on top and that’s all there is to it. Enjoy your phenomenally healthy and tasty lunch/dinner/whatever.
Optional substitutions: Use any kind of leafy green here, kale would also work, even iceberg if you must. If you don’t like green onion, use any other fresh herbs. You can also add other toppings like raw nuts or seeds, croutons, olives, sliced peppers, etc.
