This spicy white bean and spinach salad is packed with fiber
In this light and refreshing salad, we season white beans with ras el hanout, a Moroccan spice blend containing cinnamon, cumin, turmeric, ginger, cardamom, and ground black and red pepper. If you prefer a creamier texture, gently mash some of the beans while you stir everything together. The bean salad is served on a bed of light spinach that pairs well with the beans, but also grilled chicken or steak kebabs on another night.
