Here's a secret: I don't love to spend hours in the kitchen. I very much enjoy the process of cooking, but I'm often in a hurry. (Life is busy, after all!) And so I'm really a fan of healthy meals in a flash.

We eat a lot of beans in my house. My boyfriend, Lawrence, and I will often make a quick lunch or dinner with chickpeas or kidney beans. Recently, I've been really into lupini beans. If you've never tried them, go try them! Where to buy lupini beans?They're often sold in glass jars in the ethnic food section of the grocery store, and you can buy them on Amazon.com. The best part is you don't have to know how to prepare lupini beans, because the type sold in a jar requires no preparation!

 

So I made this quick lupini bean salad with a base of lupini beans, jazzing up the flavor with whole-grain mustard and red pepper flakes. Then I topped my creation with crushed pistachio for extra crunch and extra protein. You see, as a dietitian, I want to make sure the vegan dishes I'm creating offer plenty of fueling protein!

 

And wondering how to crush pistachios? Just put the nuts in a zip-top plastic bag, then you can either crush with a meat tenderizer or really anything on the heavier side, such as a can of beans.

Lawrence and I ate this lupini bean salad with crushed pistachio for dinner last night. You could pair it with a green salad. Or you can do what we did and pair it with whole-grain toast topped with sliced avocado. The combo was delish, and the crushed pistachio adds such a nice crunch!
