Simple whole food ingredients

This nutritious zucchini and spinach bean vegan casserole is made with clean whole natural plant food ingredients. It contains healthy plant proteins and complex carbohydrates. Here is what you’ll need:

  • cooked beans – I used white beans, however, you can use whatever beans you have in your pantry – kidney beans, black beans, cannellini beans
  • veggies – I used zucchini, spinach, onion, and carrot
  • ground flax seeds – for healthy Omega-3s
  • seasoning – dried dill, savory, cumin, salt

Optimized for Weight-loss and Great Health

I have used only whole natural plant foods in this bean casserole recipe to help you lose weight and stay healthy

That means no animal foods and no oils. This meal will not only keep you trim but also protect your heart, brain and overall health.

The beans are rich in minerals such as zinc and iron but also complex starch, which is digested slowly and prevents overeating. The beans also contain resistant starch that feeds the good gut bacteria in your gut which are vital for great weight and health.

This delicious meal is antioxidant and micronutrient-rich because of the onions, spinach, dill, cumin, and savory. These nutrient-dense foods fight inflammation, reduce oxidative stress and ultimately help you detoxify and shed the extra pounds.

The flax seeds have those important Omega-3 fats that are essential to brain health.

  • Preheat the oven to 350°F (180°C).
  • Shred the zucchini and carrot. If you have an electric shredder use it. I love mine, it always saves me time and effort.
  • Then, wash the cooked beans well. Place the onion, spinach, and half of the beans in a food processor and pulse until finely chopped. You may need to scrape the sides from time to time.
  • Put the mixture in a large bowl. Add the remaining half of whole beans, shredded zucchini, and carrot. Season with the spices (dill, cumin, savory, and salt) and ground flax seeds. Mix everything well together.
  • Spread the mixture in a baking pan/casserole dish. Mine measures 30 x 21 cm (12" x 8"). Smooth the surface with a spoon.
  • Bake the casserole in the oven for 30 mins. Serve hot with my easy Garlic Tahini Sauce and enjoy!

You can find detailed instructions with photos in the post above.


  • If you use dry beans, soak about 2 cups overnight and then boil them in plenty of water until soft. To reduce the potential stomach bloating, you may change the water after 15 minutes of boiling.

    When I had guests over, I made this recipe with only half the dose. For variety. They really liked the dish, I recommend it!

  3. I’m trying to print the recipe, but I have to print all 4 pages of it with the photos, that’s a waste of paper… Not very environmentally-friendly. Adn I can’t copy and paste the text into a Word document in order to print it. You might wan to offer printing without the photos or allow copy and paste… It looks delicious but I will not be trying it because of that.

    • Dear Danielle,
      Thanks for pointing out this issue.
      I have immediately contacted our web developed and the issue has been solved.
      We have removed the photos when you use the print button on the recipe card. It is working on our end, I hope it works for you too.
      All the best, Venny
