Step 1

Liquidize your plum tomatoes, peppers and portabello mushroom before adding all of the beans

Step 2

Finely chop your onion and add this to the mixture along with the tamarind extract and chili powder, stir this thoroughly and add to the oven to bake for 50 minutes at 180, ensure you have a lid on the dish to maintain the moisture.

Step 3

Once baked stir in your remaining ingredients simmer gently for 5 minutes to infuse the flavours

Step 4

Serve with fresh buttered crunchy bread.


Give your beans a little mush after the initial baking process to infuse more flavour into the beans.

For a more traditional but less vegetarian option fry some ground beef instead of the portabello.
