    Mmmm sounds yummy :) definately going to give it a try
    do you think you could do the same on a red day with extra lean or quorn mince, (take most of the beans out and leave some kidney beans in as a Hex)...
    would it still be free that way? xx

    Yes, it would be but make sure you measure your allocated beans as a Healthy Extra... it is really quite nice :)
