Preheat oven to 180oC

Tip the onion, peppers, garlic, ginger, spices, half the oil, and one teaspoon of sea salt flakes into a roasting tin large enough to hold them all in roughly one layer.

Mix well, then transfer to the oven and roast for 20 minutes.

After 20 minutes, take the beans, along with their liquid, the tinned tomatoes, remaining olive oil, spring onions and stir into the liquid.

Then return to the oven for 30 minutes.

Once cooked, taste and add more salt as needed.

Don’t worry if the source looks a little thin. It will thicken as it sits.

Scatter over the spring onions and serve with salad, stir fried vegetables, or your favourite Protein choice.
