OAT SALAD – WHITE BEANS – RED ADZUKI BEANS – PEAS – PEELED CHICKPEAS, WITH YELLOW DATTERINI TOMATOES, BASIL, SPINACH, BLACKBERRIES AND SEEDS

INGREDIENTS (FOR 4 PEOPLE)

  • 500 g of ZuppamiXlegumi e Avena
  • 350 g of yellow datterini tomatoes
  • 100 g of small spinach leaves
  • 12 basil leaves
  • 3-4 sprigs of parsley
  • a few fresh marjoram leaves
  • 125 g of blackberries
  • linseeds and sesame seeds
  • salt, extra virgin olive oil and black pepper to serve

PROCEDURE

  1. The night before (or a few hours before) Wash, dry and finely chop the herbs.
    Wash and cut the tomatoes in two, then, in a large bowl, season with herbs and plenty of olive oil, helping with your hands, “massaging” the tomatoes and crushing some of them so as to extract the juice. Add a little salt, continue to mix with a spoon and place covered in the fridge for a couple of hours or overnight.
  2. The next day, rinse the ZuppamiXlegumi e Avena and cook over a low heat for about 60 minutes in plenty of water (3 l), adding the salt at the end of cooking, and add a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil once cooked. Stir and let cool, then add the marinated datterini with herbs and mix well.
  1. Wash and drain the spinach and blackberries, then add them to the salad and season with just a little salt and oil if necessary, and with a couple of tablespoons of linseed and sesame seeds.
  1. Lavare e scolare bene lo spinacino e le more, poi unirli all’insalata e condire il tutto con ancora poco sale e olio all’occorrenza, e con un paio di cucchiai di semi di lino e sesamo.
