Vegan cheese and apple salad is a delicious idea for a light, healthy snack or brunch.
Red apples give a crunchy touch, essential in any salad. The vegan cheese I choose is made with Lupine flour. Lupine is a Mediterranean bean. The lupin flour is a rich plant source of protein. It contains minerals such as iron and potassium. Like other legumes it contains B vitamins, with particular reference to vitamin B1. It also appears that lupins would be able to reduce cholesterol and prevent diseases such as hypertension and diabetes.
Vinegar and apple juice, seasonal apples and hazelnuts are other key ingredients of this delicious vegan cheese and apple salad, ideal for brunch too.
