Fennel Salad with Lupin Beans

This salad showcases the not so common lupin beans. Just like soy beans, lupin beans are full of protein and grow more easily in Europe. That’s why these legumes are gaining popularity. The fennel and lupin beans will keep a bit of a bite and together with the nice spices and spinach, it makes a good summer salad.
