Ancient Grain and Lupin Salad

Ancient Grain and Lupin Salad


  • 1 Cup Carrington Farms Ground Lupin Bean
  • ⅔ cup Rice
  • ⅔ cup green lentils
  • ½ cup pistachio kernels, roughly chopped
  • 30 red seedless grapes, halved
  • 2 bunches of tarragon
  • 1 bunches of dill
  • 1 bunch of mint
  • Salt & pepper


  • 5 oz (10 tbsp) Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 2 tbsp Dijon mustard
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice
  • Salt & pepper


  1. Place 4 cups of water into a small saucepan and bring to the boil. Add Wild Rice, reduce heat and simmer with the lid on for 40-45 minutes, until kernels puff open.
  2. Drain and set aside to cool.
  3. While rice is cooking, place Green Lentils and 4 cups of cold water into another small saucepan and bring to the boil. Reduce to a simmer and cook, uncovered for about 20 minutes. Drain and set aside to cool.
  4. Place Lupin into a small saucepan and add about 4 cups of cold water. Bring to boil, reduce heat slightly so Lupin doesn’t boil over, and cook for 5 minutes.
  5. Drain Lupin into a fine mesh sieve, rinse with cold water and drain again. When cool enough to handle, wrap in a clean cloth and squeeze out excess moisture.
  6. While grains are cooking or cooling, put dressing ingredients into a large shallow bowl, whisk until creamy and store in an airtight container.
  7. Combine all grains in a large bowl, toss to combine and season to taste.
  8. Pour ¾ of the dressing onto the grains and set aside to allow the grains to absorb the flavors, at least 30 minutes or the day before. Keep the remaining dressing in an airtight container until the next stage.

**Just before serving add the chopped pistachios, grapes and roughly chopped herbs. Toss in the remaining dressing and serve.
