Takes 18 minutes
- 150 g tempeh/ tofu
- 6 spring onions/ scallions
- 1 carrot
- 1 red chilli
- 800 g mixed beans
- 400 g black beans
- 800 g chopped tomatoes
- 50 g dark chocolate (70%-80%)
- 1 tbsp smoked paprika
- 3 tbps Tamari
- 1 bunch coriander
- 1 red pepper
- 1 yellow pepper
Finely chop the spring onions/scallions. Grate the carrot. Chop the tempeh/tofu into small pieces. Finely chop the chilli. Drain and rinse the beans. Finely chop the red and yellow peppers.
Put a small non-stick pan on a high heat and add the tempeh blocks with no oil. Cook on both sides till they golden and sear. This will take approx 3 mins on each side. Add 2 tablespoons of tamari and mix well and turn off the heat.
Put the large non stick pan on a high heat. Once hot add the chopped spring onions and the carrot. Cook for 1 minute while stirring regularly. If anything starts to stick add 2 tablespoon of water and ‘deglaze’ the pan.
Add the chopped red chilli and peppers to the pan along with a tsp of salt. Mix well and leave to cook for 3-4 minutes.
Add the drained beans, the 2 tins of chopped tomatoes and the chocolate, the smoked paprika and the remaining 1 tablespoon of tamari. Cook for a further 2 minutes.
Finely chop the coriander and add and mix through. Serve with the tempeh on top.
