Lovely recipe the whole family enjoyed it including my 2 and 1 year olds! Will definitely make again, may add a bit more bacon though just to keep the hubby happy!

What a fantastic salad - I didn't have any salad onions so substituted thinly-sliced red onion instead. Gorgeous!
We too ate the whole lot between 2......

As with the other suggestions, the portions are not really enough for a main meal, but it can easily be bulked out with more salad ingredients.

Really great bowl! It is a good size for lunch, but for dinner I recommend two eggs per serving and more beans.

Excellent! Really delicous but we did eat the amount for 4 between 2 of us but it was all so healthy and nutritious I did not feel remotely guilty.

Great recipe, and not too heavy. The only problem is you want more than one bowl!!
