Red Bean & Beetroot Salad

This recipe is from a leaflet by McKenzie's Legumes that my mum has had for years.  It was a really pleasant surprise - raw beetroot is really good, and it was really enhanced by the flavours.  Perfect as a side for a barbecue, or salad-fest, like we did below :-)

400g tin red kidney beans
1 clove garlic, crushed
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1/2 brown onion (I left this out for the kids' sake)
2 medium beetroot
1 tablespoon low-fat natural yoghurt
1 teaspoon red wine vinegar
salt & pepper
1 tablespoon sesame seeds

Chop onion finely.  Peel beetroot, then grate.  Combine onion, beetroot, beans, garlic, cumin, yoghurt and vinegar.  Mix well.  Season with salt & pepper, sprinkle with sesame seeds and serve.

A delicious, real food & super healthy lunch we enjoyed with friends & kids!
