  1. Heat oven to 425F / 218C degrees.

  2. Heat an oven-safe skillet with first portion of olive oil over medium heat. Add onions to heated oil with a pinch of salt and saute for 2-3 minutes to get them started cooking.

  3. Add garlic and oregano and saute until fragrant, about 1 minute more. 

  4. Fold in beans, tomatoes, and olives. Top with lemon slices and drizzle second portion of olive oil over the top. Scatter dill (portion for white beans) over top of everything and cover the pan tightly with foil.

  5. Transfer pan to the oven and bake until everything is heated through and flavors have come together, 12-15 minutes. Remove and discard lemon slices.

  6. If bulgur was made ahead, warm it in the microwave (remember to reserve half if doubled).

  7. Give cucumber salad a stir.

  8. Form a bed of bulgur on serving plates. Top with beans, tomatoes, olives, and onions and sprinkle with feta crumbles (if using). Serve with cucumber-dill salad on the side. Enjoy!
