I can't say that I followed this shortcut version seeing as I roasted some fresh veg (courgette, peppers and squash), made a basic spicy tomato sauce, mixed them together with a can of normal kidney beans, and voila! served with pearl barley. But great for getting some vegan inspiration!

This recipe is so very quick and easy. I initially made it for vegan visitors but it was such a hit with everyone that it is now a regular in our family of meat-eaters. I usually use both kidney beans and tomatoes in chilli sauce to give it a little more heat. I usually serve with jacket spuds and side salad instead of the grain pouch. Delicious!!!

Would you be able to specify the make of the ready-to-eat mixed grain pouch?
