serves 2

  • 1 can/carton (about 230g drained weight) of black beans/chick peas/butter beans, drained
  • 1 avocado
  • 1 lime
  • 1 garlic clove
  • 4 cherry tomatoes
  • 1 handful fresh coriander
  • 1 tsp chilli flakes
  • 2 large handfuls frozen corn, defrosted
  • 1 head of romaine (cos) lettuce


  1. To make the dressing pulse the avocado, lime juice, garlic, 2 cherry tomatoes, coriander stems and chilli flakes in a food processor. If you don’t have a food processer you can mash the avocado with a fork, chop the garlic, cherry tomatoes and coriander stems really small and mix it all together.
  2. Mix the black beans, corn, remaining 2 cherry tomatoes (chopped) and dressing together in a bowl.
  3. Chop the lettuce and divide it between the 2 plates, then spoon the black bean mix on top.
  4. Enjoy ☺
