    I’ve never heard of lupini beans at all. Are these tinned? Fresh? Oh wait maybe I have, are they lupin seeds? OMG you’re so now. I just read an article in the Sunday paper here on the weekend about lupin flour- it’s hard to get here, although WA grows 85% of the world crop.

    Don’t think I’ve seen them around, but I should try lupini beans sometime – they sound tasty!

    i love brussel sprouts but i have never eaten them raw, sounds delish.

    Yum! One can never have too many Brussels sprout recipes, especially if paired with beans. 🙂 I liked lupini beans because they last a long time in the fridge – just need to change the water a few times a week. 🙂 I find they taste a bit cheesy from the saltiness… thoughts?

    Your salad looks marvelous! But I admit that I don’t know what lupini beans are… do they have another name or are they some new thing?

    I have never tried brussels sprouts raw, this salad looks like a great way to start. Apparently you and I think alike. I just made a brussels sprout and apple hash the other night with dinner.

    I love lupani beans! They are SO high in protein. I actually roasted them the other night in a brussel-eggplant-tomato sauce mix. Must try it raw!!!

    Oh okay, if you’re gonna describe lupini beans like that, they’d BETTER be available in New Zealand. Alas, I’m not sure every single breed of dog your family has ever owned will be hanging out in New Zealand within the space of an hour, but I’ll keep an eye out for them, too.

    Looks so delicious Hannah! Very spring like 🙂

    This sounds delicious! I’ve never heard of lupini beans either but they look huge and that’s a plus in my book. I’ve always meant to try raw BSprouts. Now is the time!

    gorgeous photos – I want some and I want a beautiful bowl like that – it all looks very spingtime and green and healthy!

    I ADORE lupini beans and so cool to find someone else who does! They are a speciallity from Puglia in Italy, eaten as a pre-dinner snack with a cold beer or tossed in a salad!

    Oh yes, yes I do enjoy the look of this salad!! Something nice and different. SLAW – great word.

    great idea; I love brussels sprout slaw!
    and the dish is super pretty, too. 🙂

  15. Lorraine @ Not Quite Nigella

    I will even give up my sometime dislike for brussel sprouts for this! 😀

  16. Kari @ bite-sized thoughts

    And there I was thinking I knew all the beans. I had never even heard of lupini! I shall have to investigate.

    This looks lovely, and a perfect edible accompaniment to all the non-edible loves you mention 🙂

    Great looking Salad. The Lupini Beans are intriguing. I’ve never heard of them.

    “They must be prepared correctly or there is a risk of Lupin poisoning!” “Lupin allergy is on the rise and may cause life-threatening anaphylaxis in sensitive individuals!”

    Sheesh when did Wikipedia get so scary? Chill out Wiki, they’re just beans.

  19. Lou

    mmmmm you know I LOVE the the sound of this 🙂

    Well, what a lovely day you just described–and what a lovely salad this is! I am one of those rare and slightly insane individual who actually HAS made lupini beans from dried–and followed the entire “soak and drain, soak and drain, soak and drain” regime for ten. full. days. before venturing to cook and then eat them. I mean, whoever first discovered that?! (post on my blog if you’re interested in the process–now it’s one of the leading search terms for my blog!). I only discovered that I love raw brussels sprouts about a year ago, and now am delighted I have another recipe to try with them. Yay for raw brus sprouts salads! And yay for cards and dogs and walks in the (warmer) sunshine!

    You’ve been going for lots of walks? Can I assume Toronto is thawing out? I’ve never eaten Brussels Sprouts raw and I can’t think why I haven’t when your salad looks so wonderful. So sorry for my absence – and I don’t even have a falling down the stairs concussion story as an excuse (not that you used your injury as an excuse!) No, I can only blame Telstra – a far less interesting story xx

  22. Sarah

    That looks so very lovely! I really like Brussels Sprouts (or “mini cabbages” as I like to call them), and I bet they’d be so sweet and crunchy prepared like that!

  23. Catherine

    Mmmm just lurv lupini beans and what a way to package brussel sprouts. Tops! Can’t wait for more salad ideas I live on cabbage and sesame n lemon! Xcat

  24. Heathy

    Lupini beans?! I’ve never eaten those but you’ve got my intrigued! Not sure about raw brussels but perhaps i shall try them one day. Only finally read your email a few days ago and promise to write soon dearest! xoxoxo

  25. msihua

    I would eat this and replace evil sprouts with cos lettuce 😛

  26. Donna Pinto

    Do you take the skin off lupini bean? I’d love to try this salad.
    What do you think is best served with this salad to really impress?
