In a deep pot, heat the olive oil for a minute, then add the onion and garlic. Cook down on a low heat until the onion is translucent. Add the beans and potatoes to the pot and cook them for about 3 minutes on a medium heat, stirring occasionally to avoid burning.


When the potatoes and beans begin to develop a nice golden colour, add the parsley, mint, courgette, tomatoes, coconut sugar and tomato paste. Simmer this mixture for around 10 minutes, on a medium heat, stirring often to avoid burning. Add salt and pepper to taste.


Increase the heat to high and add hot water to cover the beans and potatoes. Bring to a boil, then simmer on low heat with a lid on for about 20 minutes. Make sure there is always water in the pot. You don’t want this to be a soup-like dish but you definitely want some extra liquid so you can enjoy that beautiful sauce with a slice of bread at dinner. This dish is traditionally served with feta, so look out for some plant based feta to serve with this recipe.
