Get the Veg On

a) Preheat your oven to 220°C/200°C fan/gas mark 7. Boil a full kettle.

Finish the Prep

b) Drain and rinse the butter beans in a sieve.

Simmer your Stew

c) Pour in the tomato passata, vegetable stock paste, butter beans, remaining mixed herbs, sugar and water for the sauce (see pantry for both amounts).

d) Stir to combine and bring to the boil, then lower the heat slightly and simmer until thickened, 4-5 mins.

Combine and Stir

a) Add the spinach to the pan a handful at a time until wilted and piping hot, 1-2 mins.

b) Once roasted, add the peppers to your sauce.

c) Stir the creme fraiche and half the hard Italian style cheese through the sauce and bring to the boil, then remove from the heat.

d) Season to taste with salt and pepper.

Finish and Serve
