Directions:

  1. Preheat the oven to 400°F (200°C). Heat the oil in a saucepan over low heat. Add the onion and a pinch of sea salt, and cook gently for about 5 minutes until soft. Stir in the mint and 1 teaspoon of the dried oregano.
  2. Add the beans, tomatoes, and pine nuts, and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to low, and simmer gently for 15-20 minutes until thickened. Season well with salt and pepper.
  3. Spoon the bean mixture into a baking dish. Mix together the yogurt, egg, and remaining 2 tsp oregano. Spoon evenly over the top of the bean mixture. Bake for 15-20 minutes until the top is golden, puffed, and set. Serve hot with a crisp green salad.
