Apparently I can cook (without a recipe).

I'm a strict recipe follower well at least until i have made it enough that I can play around with it.

Tonight though i wanted to make something similar to a dish i had at a local restuarant, and i searched online and was unable to find a similar recipe so I decided to make it up and its not too bad and super quick to make.

I call it butter garlic beans (couldn't think of a name)

2 tablespoons nuttlex (vegan margarine)
garlic (as much as you like, i used about 2-3 cloves)
1 teaspoon of veg stock powder
1/2 cup of water
400g can chickpeas
400g can kidney beans
400g can cannellini(white beans)
a handful of baby spinach leaves

Heat nuttlex and garlic for a few minutes. Add beans, stock, and water and bring to boil, simmer for 5 minutes and stir in spinach leaves

Add the essential salt and pepper and serve on rice.

Serves 2.

The one thing i would add to it next time would be an onion, but i simply didn't have any this time.


  1. AWESOME! I have never tried Veg Stock. Might have to try and find that. thanks for the idea

    Happy Weekend!

  2. That looks delicious. Of course you can cook without a recipe. Isn't it fun? :-)
