A comforting and creamy bake with roast cherry tomatoes, peppers and white beans in a coconut and harissa sauce. One for all the family.

Using some of my favourite ingredients again here–roast cherry tomatoes, peppers with lots of white beans. Deliciously creamy and flavoursome from the Harissa, coconut milk and nutritional yeast, which adds a lovely savoury and slightly cheesy hint.

It’s such a delicious combination and I can’t stop creating new recipes using these ingredients. Baking helps the flavours meld together and everything becomes delicious and sticky.

As I roasted the garlic heads separately, as a final touch you can squeeze them out, then scoop everything up with warm sourdough.

    Made this and I loved it. So good. I would add some more harissa to the dish next time, for my liking. Thank you

  2. This sounds amazing! Thank you so much for the recipe. I’ve been a strict vegetarian for 40 years, and found out ten years ago that I have ceoliac disease, so my diet is fairly limited. I’m always on the hunt for tasty food! Thanks again.

  3. Hi Niki,

    What can I use instead of Harissa?

    I’m planning to cook this tomorrow and I have a 1 year old at home who likes veggies!

    Is Harissa very spicy?

    Cheers! Thanks for your amazing recipes <3

    1. Hi Mayra
      You don’t have to include, its a little bit spicy.
      You can add sun dried tomato paste, or just tomato puree. Or use a spice mix (1 tsp cumin, 1 tsp smoked paprika)
      Hope that helps.
      Much love

    Nice recipe. Not sure if it needs the coconut milk, perhaps some polenta and real sauce for an Italian meatless main dish

  5. Hi! Looking forward to making this tonight. Two questions: in step 4, “mix the onions, coconut milk, pulses,” what does “pulses” mean? Also: when do the two cans of beans go in? Also during step 4? Thank you!

    I don’t normally leave reviews, BUT I felt this was necessary

    I’ve made this tonight and have just finished a bowl. So much flavour and so filling! It’s making cutting meat out of my diet easy.

    Thankyou xx

    I love this dish! I’ve tripled the quantities and am making it for my friend’s birthday camping weekend! Thank you.

    PS accidentally left coconut out first time and still amazing.
