Today's dinner needed to be something quick that all the children would eat, that was warming and full of energy so here is what I did.
Take 3 small shallots, peel and chop finely. Finely chop half a red pepper and a quarter of a green pepper. Cook all of these in vegetable oil with 1 clove of garlic. Add some mixed herbs, salt and paprika. While these are cooking take your pre cooked (or tinned) black eyed beans. Heat in the microwave for two minutes and then mash up with a potato masher.
When the peppers and onions are nicely softened add a tin of chopped tomatoes, when heated through slowly add the mashed black eyed beans and mix thoroughly. Serve with couscous and season with salt and freshly ground black pepper.
