    Syns on green & extra easy – free

    1 medium onion finely chopped
    2 cloves garlic - minced
    1 tin each of the following: red kidney beans, pinto beans, butter beans
    Small tin baked beans in tomato sauce
    4 large chestnut mushrooms chopped small
    Chilli powder - to taste
    Tsp coriander seed - ground
    Heaped tsp paprika
    Tbsp tomato puree (0.5 syn)
    1 500ml carton passata
    Salt & pepper

    1. Fry the onion in fry light & a little water until beginning to soften. Add the garlic & a drop more water. Cook for 2 minutes.


    2. Add the chilli powder, coriander, paprika & tomato puree, mix well and add a drop more water.


    3. Add all the beans, mushrooms & passata. Mix. Top up with about 250ml water or Vecon stock.

    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 :)
