Inspired Mixed Bean Salad

This is a dish I put together, with a can of mixed beans and courgette, and some fresh ingredients not sure if it’s Greek or Mexican! Pretty simple and quick to prepare.


1 medium courgette, quartered lengthways and sliced

1-4 garlic cloves

2 tsp dried oregano (or 1 ½ tbsp fresh chopped )

½ tsp ground cinnamon

400g chopped tomatoes, fresh or can

400g can mix beans

300g bulgar

Salt and freshly ground black pepper

2 tablespoons fresh flat-leaf parsley, and served with vulgar and fresh parsley.


Put the courgette and garlic in a pan over medium heat. Add 2-3 tablespoon of water and saute for 1-2 minutes. Stir in the oregano, cinnamon. Then add the chopped tomatoes, mixed beans and bring to the boil. Leave to simmer for 8-12 minutes over low-medium heat. Meanwhile, cook the bulgar following the instructions on the packet.

Once the stew and the bulgar are cooked. Season to taste, scatter over some of the fresh herbs and serve hot.
