✓ 2tsp tomato puree

✓ 100ml reduced salt vegetable or chicken stock

✓ 200g easy cook long grain brown rice

1. Heat the vegetable oil in a large saucepan and add the onion. Fry gently for 2 - 3 minutes, then add the carrot, garlic, red chilli and peppers and fry for 2 - 3 minutes, stirring often.

2. Add the frozen mince, beans, tomatoes, tomato puree and stock. Bring to the boil, then reduce the heat and simmer, partially covered, for 25 - 30 minutes. At the same time, put the rice on to cook in plenty of gently boiling water - it will take 25 - 30 minutes.
