Black Bean and Feta Salad

Canned beans are a great store-cupboard staple for fasting days. Dried beans are cheaper to buy but need a bit more forward planning as you have to soak them overnight and boil them for an hour. They do keep well in the fridge, once cooked, and I find that I prefer the texture of home-cooked beans to canned ones. Either way, they are filling and nutritious and ideal for fasting days!

This is a very simple salad which should keep you full for a few hours.
