This is a recipe I developed when I was at university with no time to look after myself. You can prepare this SO easily with the canned products listed above. The recipe was inspired by the “mess of pottage” story from my childhood (Jacob and Esau).

It tastes really good, and is really filling. I have never had anyone not like this one.

Preperation is, of course, put all the ingredients in a pot, heat to boiling whilst stirring, and then let simmer until you run out of time! The secret is in the spices.

Serves: 3-4
