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.

I have develop a passion for natural and healthy life style, starting with a vegan life style including regular exercising each day. Which helped to feel inspired and happy within myself. my diet is very restricted due to severe allergies! When ever a food triggers a hostile response from the body's immune system the result is an allergy attack, which on occasion may be life-threatening although it's relatively simple to identifying problem foods, avoiding them completely is not always easy. My journey with allergies hasn't been easy "but" it has helped me to becomes a stronger person and would like to share and encourage others to never get discouraged, there's always light at the end of the tunnel if you keep persevering.
