This is a Dads' recipe: one I've concocted while preparing meals for 3 toddlers. I wanted a high protein healthy lunch with minimum preparation.
It's super simple: you just need to get hold of the ingredients.
Gungo peas are 49p per can in my local corner shop. The coriander is also cheap in Barnet. 50p
- Gungo peas 300ml can
- passata (2tb) or 1 large fresh tomato diced
- fresh coriander (fistful)
- olive oil
Pour the can of beans in a large bowl. Pour about two teaspoons of olive oil on. Microwave on full power (800w) for 2min 30. Take them out, chop in a big fistful of coriander as small as you can manage. Two tablespoons of pasta tomato sauce or passata will make them smoother but chopped fresh tomatoes work too.
Add salt, pepper, squeeze on half a lemon or lime, squash with a fork to get the consistency you like. I prefer them soft but not too mushy.
Stir, microwave for another 1min.
Serve piping hot on brown bread. Grate on whatever cheese you have in the fridge.
