Majid’s Mega Mixed Bean Goulash Recipe

90 % of 100
Thermos Taste for Adventure

I love nothing more than getting in the mix, losing myself in music, and once I’m in the zone nothing can stop me. I always try and prep some food in my Thermos before I know I’m going into the studio so I’m prepared. This is my go-to recipe as it’s quick to make and the mixed beans and chickpeas have a low glycaemic index, meaning they release energy slowly, ensuring I can keep the beat going.

Serves 4
10 minutes to prepare and 30 minutes to cook


  1. Heat the olive oil in a large frying pan and add the onion and peppers and cook for 5 mins.

  3. Add the beans, chickpeas, peppers, passata and veg stock and bring to the boil.
  4. Reduce to a simmer and cook with the lid on for 20 mins.

    So filling and nourishing! I added meat to mine but this is a lovely vegetarian option.
