Beans and Egg salad

image

A quick dinner, full of proteins and nutritional value and very low on carbohydrates when you don’t want to cook anything! This came out as unplanned dinner tonight when I had loads of vegetables and still didn’t know what to cook. I added couple of boiled eggs to make it more filling but you can replace that with some pasta if you don’t like eggs.

Haven’t used any sauces, herbs, etc and only dressing is of extra virgin olive oil and salt and pepper. I had some couscous left over from previous meal so I added that too! This came out really delicious and worked great for dinner. The beans added to the fibre! This is great on its own or even as a side dish!
