415g tin mixed beans
1 whole medium leek, thinly sliced
5 cloves of garlic, very finely chopped
1 large onion, very finely chopped
1 large bell pepper (I had an orange one), chopped
4 large tomatoes - diced (and keep all juice)
50ml good rapeseed oil
Salt and pepper
Take a good heavy-bottomed pan, melt the butter, add the oil, then all of the other ingredients except the beans. Soften the ingredients very gently over a low heat for about 30 minutes, until they are very soft and caramelised. Add the Beans and some hot water as needed and stir through. Warm the whole dish through to gently bubbling over a low heat, simmer for a further 10 minutes, season with salt and pepper to taste.
I stirred through some diced beetroot and gorgonzola cheese prior to serving.
It serves 2 and was very tasty...
