Feta Bean Parcel

These are the best! They can be prepped ahead and popped in the oven at the last minute. What is better, is they keep in the fridge for a handy packed lunch or picnic.

Oven 200c

Makes 6



  • 2 cartons cannolini beans
  • 2tbsp tomato puree
  • 150g sundried tomato paste
  • 1tsp cumin
  • 4 tomatoes, chopped
  • Handful spinach
  • 100g feta, diced
  • 1 roll short crust pastry
  • 1 egg
  • A sprinkling of mixed seeds or black onion seeds.


  1. Put the beans, cumin, tomato puree and sundried paste into a food processor and blitz.
  2. Pour it into a pot, along with the chopped tomatoes and spinach. If you are leaving it until later, set it aside now.
  3. Otherwise, heat it through, stir in the feta and unroll your pastry. Slice the pastry into roughly three rectangles and then again, directly across the middle so you have 6 small pieces.
  4. Crack the egg into a bowl and stir with a spoon. Now using your fingers or a brush, run the egg along all the edges. Put a small spoonful of the mix into the center of each square and pull all four corners together to lift it onto a baking sheet, then squeeze along the joins to seal. Repeat for all parcels. Lastly, gently brush the egg over the surface and sprinkle with seeds. Cook for around 15-20mins.
