What you'll need:

  • 1 can of kidney beans, drained
  • 1 lime - zest and juice one half, slice the other into wedges
  • 1 shallot, diced
  • 3 tomatoes, diced
  • 85g feta cheese
  • 1 green chilli, finely chopped and deseeded
  • 2 avocados, stoned, peeled and halved
  • ½ tsp cumin seeds
  • A handful of chopped coriander
Time: 2+ hours
Serves: 6

Method

First

Lightly toast your cumin seeds in a hot, dry pan for a couple of minutes, and then toss into a bowl with the lime zest and juice, tomatoes, kidney beans, coriander, chilli and shallots. Crumble the feta into the mix, and mix together.

Second

Spoon on top of the avocado halves, scatter with some extra coriander, and squeeze a bit more lime juice from the wedges.

For a beautifully matching wine, we'd recommend A. A. Badenhorst 'Secatuers' Chenin Blanc. This traditional French grape works wonderfully with goats cheese, quiche, salads, and even dishes which use orchard fruits like apples and pears.
