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.

this looks simple and lovely. But I wonder how a portion of this gives you 11 grams of sat fat - looking at the ingredients there is nothing to provide this high value. I need to keep under 10 grams of sat fat a day so if that was true i could say good bye to this idea.
But i guess it is a mistake as maybe they counted in some sour cream or something that is not mentioned on the list.
Will be making but pure veg and spices, nothing else.

I used a can of (Waitrose) mixed beans in a spicy tomato sauce as well as a can of toms, plus garlic and chilli, as you do, very nice indeed

Delish. Had to add some salt though...

yum! I added a fresh glove of garlic instead of using tinned tomatoes with garlic. Plus I added a pinch of brown sugar and I simmered it for 20minutes. Really nice.

Yummy!! Had half tin of sweetcorn to use up as well as a courgette and a few mushrooms, this bulked it out but only served 2 with wholegrain rice (we were both rather hungry!!) Will certainly make it again, as mostly store cupboard ingredients it's a good budget recipe.

I used 'La Chinata' hot smoked paprika (the one in the square red tin) and knew that a tablespoon would be too hot and spicy for us so halved the quantity. Still flippin' hot! However - lovely flavours and will make again. You could have it with rice and I think a salad with red onion and avocado would go really well. Chopped coriander on the top would also be a good plan. So simple. Will make again.

I agree if you use this brand. I used just over a teaspoon and had to add some plain yoghurt as was too spicy. 1 tablespoon would have completely ruined it.

Try serving with a small bowl each of extra virgin olive oil and balsamic syrup in which to dip the bread.............M-mm!

It lacked a bit of flavour for my liking so but some chilli flakes and chilli powder. A good recipe though, just needs a bit more oomph. Will make again

Not bad... I love beans and it was very easy to make. Didn't thicken as much as suggested (I will add less water next time) but not bad. My paprika is labelled as smoked but still doesn't have much (if any) kick to it. I tend to avoid very spicy things, but could possibly have done with a tad more heat in this. Could also have done with larger portions, and as all the components are relatively healthy, I think I will scale it up next time. Served with a dollop of creme fraiche (didn't have any sour cream to hand), a sprinkle of paprika and some garlic bread. The resident veggie enjoyed it too :)

This is a great easy to make and very tasty recipe, I added garlic and a bit of chilli as well - will make this again and again.

So easy to make and very tasty. Might try with a little smokey barbecue sauce next time.

Looking at the other reviews, I was keen to try this. However, I found it to be very bland, bitter and watery. I didn't enjoy this dish unfortunately.

I was really disappointed with this. I'm not sure if it's because I used normal paprika instead of smoked (couldn't find any in Sainsbury's) but I found it really bland however much I added. I had the leftovers as a side-dish with sausages which made it a bit nicer as they lent some flavour to the dish. I wouldn't make it again

You absolutely need to use smoked paprika for this dish because it has real depth of flavour and transforms the taste from bland to warm / tasty. You can buy mild or hot smoked paprika. I tend to go for the hot variety, in which case reduce the tablespoon suggested in this recipe to a teaspoon or two. This is one of my quick store cupboard recipes - great result from store cupboard ingredients.

Excellent recipe; now a firm family favourite. I added red pepper as well because we had it in the fridge

My husband likes spicy food so I added flame roasted red peppers, garlic, ground cumin, chillli powder and freshly ground nutmeg. It was delicious!

Love this on a cold day with some crusty bread, really delicious!

I was making this from the recipe in Easy Cook Mag, and it said 2 tbsp paprika....Whew....glad I thought that was too much in a recipe for 2 people and only put 1 in! Even so it was still too much for me.
