  • 1 handful fresh or frozen split or whole green beans
  • 400 g tin chopped tomatoes
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 1 garlic clove
  • 1 whole chipotle chilli
  • 1 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1 yellow pepper, chopped
  • 6 oz Puy lentils, rinsed
  • 300 ml bouillon or plant-based stock


  • Saute the onion and garlic in 3cm of water for 5-7 minutes until soft.
  • Add the yellow pepper, Puy lentils, chipotle, smoked paprika, chopped tomatoes, stock and the fresh or frozen green beans. Stir all the ingredients together.
  • Cook for 15 - 20 minutes checking that there's enough liquid. If the lentils absorb all the liquid add a bit more stock or water.
  • Cook the Freekeh as per the packet instructions. It usually takes 10-15 minutes if it's cracked grain.
  • Spoon into warm bowls and serve.
