Body Talk

This really shows how a little imagination can turn some basic ingredients into something really special, and very healthy too! Beans are full of fibre and carbohydrates, keeping your digestive system healthy and giving you bags of energy. While the onion and garlic keep your blood and circulation in peak condition, the olive oil works on the health of most cells in your body. Add coriander and thyme and you've also got a dish which will delight even those who are difficult to impress.
