Grilled Mediterranean Vegetables on White Bean Mash
Tired of roast veggies with couscous or pasta? Try mashed beans for a cheap, healthy alternative. Vegan & Gluten-Free
1 red pepper (capsicum), deseeded and quartered
1 aubergine (eggplant), sliced lengthways
2 courgettes (zucchinis), sliced lengthways
For the Mash:
410g can haricot beans rinsed (I use Cannellini or White Kidney Beans)
1 garlic clove, crushed
100ml vegetable stock
1 tbsp chopped coriander (cilantro)
lemon wedges, to serve
You will need:
Heat the grill. Arrange the vegetables over a grill pan and brush lightly with oil. Grill until lightly browned, turn them over, brush again with oil, then grill until tender.
Meanwhile, put the beans in a small pan with the garlic and stock. Bring to the boil, then simmer, uncovered, for 10 mins. Mash roughly with a potato masher, adding a little water or more stock if the mash seems too dry.Divide the veg and mash between 2 plates, drizzle over any leftover oil and sprinkle with black pepper and coriander. Add a lemon wedge to each plate and serve.
