White Bean Salad w/ Roasted Tomatoes & Arugula

How many cookbooks can a home chef own? Not enough! Portman would say The Red Queen is a cookbook junkie. Truth is they are ALL unique! This week's find and must have for anyone who wants to improve their health and still enjoy eating, is Terry Walter's CLEAN FOOD! The  following was created from a recipe in her CLEAN FOOD cookbook.

This salad allowed The Red Queen to use up the remainder of roasted plums from an earlier weekday meal. The cook can toss her favorite root vegetables with a little oil, salt, & pepper to taste and then roast them (400 degrees F for 20 min should suffice). Prepared/Canned beans and tomatoes can be added toward the end of roasting. When placed delicately over a bed of pungent greens (arugula), you have a healthy, delicious, and filling meal! For diners who like a little dressing, a sprinkle of balsamic and extra virgin olive oil will not overpower the flavors.
