Method

  1. Heat the grill. Arrange the vegetables over a grill pan and brush lightly with oil. Grill until lightly browned, turn them over, brush again with oil, then grill until tender.

  2. Meanwhile, put the beans in a small pan with the garlic and stock. Bring to the boil, then simmer, uncovered, for 10 mins. Mash roughly with a potato masher, adding a little water or more stock if the mash seems too dry. Divide the veg and mash between 2 plates, drizzle over any leftover oil and sprinkle with black pepper and coriander. Add a lemon wedge to each plate and serve.

I really enjoyed this light and tasty dish & would do again. I scattered over some crumbled feta just before serving.

Deliciously light and dead easy to make. The tanginess of the lemon squeezed over the plate is heavenly.
