2 medium, roughly chopped

fresh red chilli

1 tsp, finely chopped

140 g, (4 x 35g) wholegrain, toasted

rocket

30 g

Instructions

  1. Heat oil in a small non-stick frying pan over medium heat. Cook onion, stirring, for 3–4 minutes or until softened. Add garlic, anchovies and chilli and cook, stirring, for 1 minute or until fragrant.
  2. Add tomatoes and rosemary and cook, stirring, for 3–4 minutes or until softened. Stir in beans and cook for a further 2 minutes or until heated through. Season with salt and pepper.

Notes

SERVING SUGGESTION: Mixed salad leaves. TIPS: You can use a splash of Worcestershire sauce instead of anchovies. Cook double the bean mixture to make Chilli bean wraps for tomorrow’s lunch. At end of Step 2, remove half the bean mixture. Cover and place in fridge. The next day, reheat and divide among 2 x 40g wholemeal tortillas. Roll to enclose filling.
