This dish makes around 4 portions.

You can freeze leftover sauce.

Buy your beans & legumes in a bulk shop (if available) or in the biggest possible packaging in order to reduce your waste.

I always cook my beans/chickpeas in advance and I store them portioned in the freezer.


When you make it take a picture and post it in our community chat. Would love to see it.
