This is the final recipe for the Warburtons Lo Fat, Hi Taste 2 week eating plan. It has been a really good plan with lots of variety and most important for me still incorporating, bakery products.  For further info and recipes see the Warburtons Facebook page

This recipe makes  enough beans for  2 lunches - freeze half for another day. This is a great store cupboard meal.You can add any other  fresh vegetables ,instead of or as well as the peppers, like finely  chopped carrots and celery.
To freeze: Freeze in a freezer bag or freeze proof container, thaw at room temperature and then heat through in a saucepan.
