Haricot Bean Ratatouille Casserole

Haricot bean casserole is a great way to use up a summer glut of courgettes, making a delicious and nourishing one pot meal.
Servings: 2
Prep Time10 mins
Cook Time45 mins

Ingredients

  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 medium onion - chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic - sliced
  • 1-2 courgette (depending on size) - sliced
  • 1 tbsp mint or other herb leaves - shredded
  • a handful of tomatoes - roughly chopped
  • 170 g haricot beans - cooked from 70 g dried
  • salt and pepper to season

Instructions

  • Heat the olive oil in a heavy pan and gently sautée the onions and garlic until translucent and soft.
  • Add the courgettes, mint (reserving a few leaves) and a sprinkle of salt. Then turn the heat right down (I use a diffuser on my lowest gas ring). Cover and cook for about 30 minutes, stirring from time to time.  The courgettes should become very soft.  You may need to add a little water during the cooking.
  • Add the tomatoes and haricot beans. Stir and allow to cook for another 15–20 minutes, until the tomatoes and beans are soft. 
  • Season to taste, garnish with some extra herbs and serve with a hunk of crusty bread.

Notes

  • If you are in a hurry use canned haricot beans, or even rinse the sauce off a can of baked beans!
