Black bean casserole

Serves 6



75g rice, cooked (I used brown rice)
1 can of black beans
200g spinach 
1 garlic clove, minced
280g frozen sweetcorn
2 spring onions, chopped
1 medium courgette, grated
1 jar of salsa (200g)
1 can of chopped tomatoes
130g cheddar cheese, grated
salt & pepper, to taste
1 tbs parsley, minced


The original recipe has very clear instructions, with some step by step methods for pre-cooking some of the ingredients, so head over to for the how to.

I couldn't be bothered with the step by step bits, so I just threw everything in a large casserole dish, stirred well, and baked at gas 5 for 50 mins, stirring half way through. It was very tasty indeed!

This recipe tastes even better made with vegetables from Community Harvest Whetstone :)
