Vegan Spinach & Bean Bowl


I remember seeing a similar vegan spinach and bean bowl recipe in a cookbook called Isa Does It. Unfortunately I no longer have the book, but luckily as the meal is so tasty, I've made it that many times that it's pretty much stuck in my head!


There are a few differences as I like to add turmeric and mix up the beans so it's not just black beans. Check it out, you won't be disappointed.

This vegan spinach and bean bowl is super delicious and nutritious, although feel free to try different types of beans and you could also replace kale instead of spinach if you fancy a change.


Here's the ingredients (serves 2)

Pinch of salt

3-4 garlic cloves, chopped finely

14 small tomatoes, chopped in half (or a tin if you choose)

1/4 cup of water

For the Guacamole:

1 Avocado crushed

  2. Saute onions for a 5 mins then add the garlic for 1 min.

  4. Add the water and white winer vinegar. Make sure its simmering and add handfuls of spinach at a time.
