Black Eyed Beans in Sauce

As all ingredients for this can be kept for months in the cupboard it's a great emergency dish. Just serve it with some potatoes or rice and you've got a filling meal.


  • 2 onions, finely chopped
  • 1 tsp oil
  • 1 vegetable stock cube
  • 3 tbsp tomato puree
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1/2 tsp chilli powder
  • 1 tin of black eyed beans, strained to remove the liquid


  1. Fry the onions in the oil over a medium heat until soft.
  2. Add the stock cube, puree, paprika and chilli powder to the onion and mix well.
  3. Let this cook for a minute or so to get the flavours to infuse.
  4. Once it's started sizzling add the black eyed beans and stir so that all the beans are coated in the tomato mix.
  5. Turn the heat right down and leave to heat through for 10 minutes, stirring every few minutes to make sure it doesn't stick.
  6. This can be served immediately or kept warm over a low heat until you're ready to serve it.
Serves 2.
