2 cloves of garlic, crushed
1 tsp ground cumin
1 tsp chilli flakes
1 tsp chilli powder
fresh sweetcorn, cut off the cob
1 can of chopped tomatoes
3 tbsp tomato puree
1 can of black beans, rinsed and drained
1 can of borlotti beans, rinsed and drained
3 tsp low salt good quality vegetable stock powder

  1. Heat the oil in a pan and fry the onion and garlic for a few minutes.
  2. Add the pepper, butternut, and spices and mix well for a few minutes.
  3. Tip in the chopped tomatoes, tomato puree,  and the vegetable stock powder and cover and simmer for 15-20 minutes, or until the butternut is soft.
  4. Add the beans and the fresh corn pieces and stir through and leave for another 5 minutes.
