Traveler’s Salad (Rice & Beans)

Whilst we were travelling around Europe we didn’t have access to a great variety of food, so most nights we bought stuff from a supermarket, which was usually cold, so when we got to the hostel in Slovenia and there was a kitchen, I lost my mind! Hot food! So I bought some rice and kidney beans and it tasted amazing, so I thought I’d make a better version with more ingredients as a way of remembering my travels at university; and it’s really lovely, tastes very hearty and flavoursome – and super cheap as well :)

I’m back at my new house now, and unfortunately I don’t have any internet at the moment, so this is coming from my friend’s house at the moment! Hopefully I’ll be back to replying to messages and posting regularly very soon :)
