  • 1 Tbsp Olive Oil
  • 400g Can Plum Tomatoes
  • 1 red onion
  • 150g Raw Carrots
  • 1 Leek
  • 1/2 Red Pepper
  • 1/2 Yellow Pepper
  • Half a bunch of coriander – leaves pulled and stalks chopped
  • 1/2 Red Chilli & 1/2 Green Chilli
  • 1/2 Tsp Ground Cumin
  • 1/2 Tsp Smoked Paprika
  • 1/2 Tsp Honey
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp White Wine Vinegar
  • Juice of 1 Lime
  • sea salt
  • freshly ground black pepper
  1. Preheat the oven to 180ºC/350ºF/gas 4.
  2. Add Olive Olive to a non stick pan once heated add the onions, carrot, leek, peppers and chilies, and cook (approx 5 mins)
  3. Then add coriander stalks, cumin and paprika cook further (10mins)
  4. Add the honey and vinegar and this point and stir through
  5. Add the tomatoes and seasoning (and the kidney beans if you want or remember!!)

I had this as a filling for the wrap and used greek yoghurt and some Parmesan to cool the spice.  But can accompany rice or potato quite easily too! Remember if you add the beans the Macro’s change.

Baked Eggs over Beans

Ok so anyone that eats eggs as much as I do will know that they joy of eggs is no more when you eat them everyday for the protein hit.  This is a nice weekend breakfast recipe and you can simply bung it in the oven whilst you do a few other things 20mins later and breakfast is served.


  1. Fry off the mushrooms in a pan
  2. Add the beans, Tabasco and seasoning (you can flavor this as you wish for your taste buds – and add onions & more herbs – so adapt as you feel free)
  3. Transfer the beans & mushrooms to an oven proof dish
  4. Crack the whole egg and egg whites into a mug
  5. Make a well in the middle of the beans and pour the eggs in
  6. Bake for 20/30 mins (depending on how you like the yolk) at 200 Degrees C/Gas Mark 6
