Ingredients...

  • 1 tbsp Co-op olive oil
  • 1 medium onion, finely chopped
  • 1 red pepper, diced
  • 1 mild red chilli, finely sliced
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 1 tsp smoked paprika
  • 250g lentils

  • 1 x 220g can Co-op kidney beans, drained
  • 1 tsp cocoa powder
  • 2 inch piece cinnamon
  • 1 tsp soft brown sugar

Method

1. Heat the olive oil in a medium saucepan and fry the onion and red pepper for 2-3 mins, until just starting to soften but not colour.

2. Add the chilli, cumin and paprika, and fry for a minute more before adding the lentils, chopped tomatoes, kidney beans, cocoa powder, cinnamon, sugar and 100ml water.

3. Bring to the boil and allow to simmer, uncovered, for 20-25 mins, until the sauce has thickened slightly and the veggies are tender.

4. Serve hot with steamed rice, a dollop of soya yogurt and a sprinkling of fresh coriander, if you like, and extra chilli — for the brave.
