Roast pepper, tomato & caramelised onion white bean bake

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, and lots of white beans.

It’s 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.

Enjoy, love Niki xx

    I’ve made this dish well over 6 times and absolutely love it. So do my family – a bunch of picky eaters!

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

    This was absolutely delicious! Thank you for bringing it into my life!!

  • 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.

  • 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

    • 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

  • Christine

    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.

    • Hi Jules
      Thats fantastic news!
      And mmm, without coconut would also work!
      Love
