  • 1 shallot
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 2 sun-dried tomatoes
  • A small handful of parsley
  • 2 tbsp of olive oil
  • 240 g beans, drained and rinsed
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1/2 tsp chili flakes
  • 1 tbsp capers
  • 30 ml vegan white wine
  • Juice of half lemon


  • Slice the shallot and grate the garlic.
  • Then slice the sun-dried tomatoes and chop the parsley.
  • In a wide pan, on medium heat, add the olive oil and shallots with a pinch of salt and sauté until translucent, stirring occasionally.
  • Then add the garlic and sun-dried tomatoes, cook for a minute or 2 before you add the beans.
  • Season, add the wine and capers and cook for 2-3 minutes until the alcohol has been evaporated.
  • Finish with the fresh parsley and squeeze the lemon juice.
  • I like to either serve it on some toasted bread that I added a generous layer of hummus, then the beans, some toasted hazelnuts and a drizzle of olive oil. Or another way is to spread hummus on a big plate, then add the beans, hazelnuts and olive oil, serve some bread on the side and enjoy as a sharing platter.
*Use gluten free bread, if you want to avoid gluten
*You can replace the wine with some veggie stock, if you prefer to keep it alcohol free.
*You can prepare the beans in advance and store them in the fridge, you can either warm it up or let it out for few minutes and enjoy at room temperature.
