Method

  1. Heat the oil in a large saucepan, then fry the onion for 5 mins until beginning to soften. Add the paprika and cook for a further min, then stir in the tomatoes and 1⁄2 a can of water. Simmer gently for 10 mins until thickened and glossy.
  2. Tip in the mixed beans and continue to cook for a further 2 mins to just heat through the beans. Spoon into warm bowls and serve with soured cream and toasted ciabatta slices, drizzled with olive oil.

I couldn't get hold of any smoked paprika so I used Cajun spices instead. I also added sliced jalapenos after serving. It tasted great!

This is lovely but needed some additions. We used balsamic vinegar, brown sugar and some vegetable stock. Then served with warm pitta bread.

I added some left-over, chopped up, pork shoulder and served it with rice and crusty bread and everyone loved it - even the kids!

Instead of chopped tomatoes with garlic, try adding a tin of ratatouille. For extra kick a teaspoon of marmite/ vegemite adds depth.

I started this recipe by frying some chorizo and red peppers before adding the rest of the ingredients. I also added some chilli flakes and just used a couple of tins of whichever beans were in the cupboard. It was really tasty, I love beans so I was bound to enjoy it but my husband is not such a bean fan but he liked it too!
Served with grated cheese, sour cream and garlic bread.

Quick, simple and delicious! What more can you ask. Couldn't get somked paprika or tomatoes with garlic, so used ordinary paprika and added a tsp of Easy Garlic. Still great! Will also try with chick peas as suggested, as I love them.
Tr more veggie stuff, Rog - you'll be surprised (and healthier).

Really good! I don't usually cook vegetarian dishes but this was very tasty. And extremely easy to do.

I used chick peas instead of mixed beans which was also nice.
I added a teaspoon of sugar to balance the acidity of the tomatoes and a teaspoon of vegetable bouillon powder too (I was serving with rice so wanted it to have plenty of flavour).

When serving this to a mixed party of vegetarians and meat-eaters just fry some chorizo slices to sprinkle over.

I made this for a large group as a vegetarian alternative to the chilli-con-carne. It went down well with vegetarians and meat eaters alike!
