Ingredients

  • ½ tbsp olive oil, plus extra for drizzling
  • ½ small onion, sliced
  • ½ small red pepper, thinly sliced into strips
  • 1 garlic clove, halved
  • 227g can chopped tomatoes
  • ½ tsp smoked paprika
  • 2 tsp red wine vinegar
  • 210g can butter beans or chickpeas, drained
  • ¼ tsp sugar
  • 1 slice seeded bread
  • a few parsley sprigs, finely chopped

Method

  1. Heat the oil in a small pan, add the onion and pepper, and fry gently until soft, about 10-15 mins. Crush half the garlic and add this to the pan, along with the tomatoes, paprika, vinegar, beans, sugar and some seasoning. Bring to a simmer and cook for 10-15 mins or until slightly reduced and thickened.

  2. Toast the bread, rub with the remaining garlic and drizzle with a little oil. Spoon the beans over the toast, drizzle with a little more oil and scatter over the parsley.
