This is one of those dinners that sounds a lot more complicated than it actually is. Make a quick tomato sauce, toss through beans in a baking dish, top with crumbled feta and pop in the oven. Now you could sit down for a while, watch a little TV or read a book. Do some knitting or whatever you’re into.
Then 10 minutes before your beans are ready you pop back into the kitchen and make your garlic yoghurt and chilli butter. Crush a fat clove of garlic and stir it through some thick greek yoghurt then melt a scoop of butter in a pan and heat til it’s bubbling and beginning to brown. Add a sprinkling of smoked paprika and you’re good to go.
You could definitely serve this with some bread to bulk it up but I think it works perfectly on its own. There’s plenty of ways you could make this even more delicious. Try adding some bacon or ham. Or keep it vegetarian with some caramelised onions or some extra vegetables like kale.
