Mint & Garlic Red Beans

I'm all for trying new combinations but I honestly didn't think this one was going to work as well as it does. I actually took it up to my parent's house for everyone to taste test to make sure I'm not just really strange in finding this combo oddly delicious. Mint and Garlic Red Beans

Red beans are jam packed with amazing nutrients and minerals, they are a fantastic source of protein and work so well with the refreshing mint, red onion and garlic. This is a great Summer plant based dish perfect for BBQ's and garden parties. It's always good to have an easy vegan dish on hand during the Summer holidays.
