  • 1 large brown onion
  • 1 punnet button mushrooms
  • 1 punnet shiitake mushrooms
  • 500g red kidney beans or black beans
  • 500g green lentils
  • 4 cloves garlic
  • 1 red pepper
  • 2 chilli peppers
  • Tomato & basil passata
  • Herbs & spices (black pepper, cumin, smoked paprika, hot chilli powder & basil)
  • Garlic oil
  • 4 small sweet potatoes, baked (to serve)


  1. Heat some garlic oil in a hot saucepan, finely chop the onion and fry until slightly browned.

  2. Meanwhile, chop the red pepper and chilli peppers and crush the garlic. Add to the pan along with cumin, smoked paprika and hot chilli powder.

  3. Chop the button mushrooms and shiitake mushrooms. Add to the pan and gently fry for a couple of minutes. Then add the passata and basil and some black pepper and lower the heat. Leave to simmer for about 20 minutes until the sauce is thick.
