Ingredients for 4 people

200 g whole wheat pasta
180 g green beans
60 g lamb's lettuce
2 avocados
16 cherry tomatoes
1 chopped raisins, prunes, almonds, dates and walnuts
2 tablespoons of flax seeds
Extra virgin olive oil
A recipe rich in fibre thanks to the whole grain cereals.


1.To prepare the vinaigrette, soak two tablespoons of flax seeds for at least 1 hour so that they are hydrated and the mucilage, a gelatinous substance that has laxative properties, comes out. When the flax seeds are well hydrated, make a mix by chopping a couple of walnuts, a couple of prunes, a couple of dates, a handful of raisins and almonds. Mix it all together thoroughly with salt, extra virgin olive oil and vinegar, and reserve until it is time to eat the salad.
2.In the meantime, cook the green beans for about 10 minutes, and dip them for a few seconds in ice water. Cook the whole wheat pasta for 10 minutes, so that it is al dente.
3.Next, cut the avocado into large cubes.
4.Assemble the salad. Place the whole wheat pasta, the beans, the cherry tomatoes, the lamb's lettuce and the avocado. Dress with the vinaigrette.

Chef’s tip

To give the beans a deep green color, put them in water with ice cubes just after removing them from the boiling water
