This is a really simple meal and relies mainly on store-cupboard ingredients so it’s a great option for mid-week when you meant to get to the shops but didn’t quite get there!

  • 2 cloves of garlic – finely chopped
  • Drizzle of vegetable oil
  • 1 red pepper – chopped
  • Half a mug of red lentils
  • Tin of organic kidney beans
  • Tin of organic baked beans
  • Tin of organic chopped tomatoes
  • 1 dessertspoonful of tomato puree 
  • 1 dessertspoonful of Marmite
  • 1/2 teaspoon of hot chilli powder
  • 2 teaspoons of ground cinnamon 
  • 2 squares of dark chocolate
  • Cracked black pepper to season
  1. Drizzle some oil into a large pan
  2. Add the garlic and onion and fry for a few minutes to soften
  3. Add the kidney beans, baked beans, lentils, red pepper, tomatoes, marmite, chilli powder, cinnamon, chocolate, black pepper and a couple of mugs of water
