  1. Blitz or chop all the veg into a small dice but still chunky enough. Cook off all the veg (reserving the peppers) in a little cooking spray /oil, garlic and fennel seeds.

  3. Pour that and the passata to the pot and simmer.
  4. Add cooked drained beans, green and red peppers and simmer.
  5. You may need to add more water to the pot, if required.

Simple, quick, and very tasty!!
