Notes:

 

This recipe makes 3 – 4 portions.

You can freeze the leftover meal.

 

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.
