Caramelised Butter Beans


Caramelised Butter Beans - Coco TribeCaramelising zucchini is one of the best ways to cook it for maximum flavour, creating a meatiness that is so satisfying in salads. Combined with butterbeans and lots of herbs, this is a simple salad that needs little else besides the creaminess of Coco Tribe yoghurt!


  • 6 medium zucchini, sliced into 2cm rounds

  • 6 tbsp olive oil

  • Salt, black pepper

  • 2 cloves garlic, smashed with the flat side of a knife

  • 1 tin butter beans, drained

  • ¼ cup each picked mint, parsley, dill

  • Juice of 1 lemon

  • 1 tbsp pomegranate molasses

  • 1 cup Coco Tribe Natural Yoghurt



  1. Preheat a large frypan over a high heat. Add 3 tablespoons of olive oil, and add the zucchini to the pan, seasoning with a little salt and pepper.

  2. Cook the zucchini in a single layer until both sides are nicely caramelised, adding the garlic to the pan during cooking to give a subtle garlic flavour. 

  3. Set the zucchini and garlic aside in a mixing bowl then add the butter beans herbs, remaining oil, herbs, lemon juice and pomegranate molasses. Season lightly and gently toss everything well to combine.
