  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • 1 green pepper, finely chopped

  • 1 tbsp smoked paprika
  • ½ tsp hot chilli powder
  • 1 tbsp tomato purée

  • 2 x 250g packs ready-cooked grains pouch (we used Merchant Gourmet Super Seed Mix)
  • ½ a small bunch flat-leaf parsley, finely chopped
  • 3 tbsp half-fat soured cream


  • STEP 1

    Heat ½ the oil in a casserole, season the pork and fry, in batches, for 3-4 minutes until browned. Scoop onto a plate with a slotted spoon. Add the remaining oil and fry the onion, pepper and garlic with a large pinch of salt for 10 minutes until soft. Add the spices and tomato purée, and cook for a few minutes. Pour in the chopped tomatoes and 250ml of water, add the pork back in, season and bring to a boil. Turn the heat down low, put on a lid and simmer gently for 2 hours.

  • STEP 2

    Tip in the beans and simmer for another 30 minutes or until the pork is very tender.

  • STEP 3

    Heat the grains according to pack instructions and divide between bowls. Spoon over the pork and beans, and top with a little parsley and soured cream.
