I am going to be one of those annoying people who did not follow the recipe and yet rates it. I used quinoa because no spelt in the house. No fresh mint in the garden, and I made just enough for myself and guessed the vinaigrette amounts. I also add a dab of agave nectar to the lemon juice to cut it's sharpness. I thought the combo of lemon dressing, red onion, parsley, white bean and grain was a real winner. Ate it warm. I think some feta, chopped, fresh tomato, bell pepper or chopped arugula would also be very nice.
I had never heard of spelt before so I was a bit skeptical to try this out. However, I was very pleased with the final results and would def. recommended this to anyone who is looking for a quick lunch to make.
This was a great, serviceable weeknight meatless main. I used kamut, dry navy beans, fresh lime juice and zest, and dried parsley and was still impressed. Might add cucumber and/or tomato tomorrow to change it up. Very fast!
