    1 red pepper, deseeded and finely chopped

    4 spring onions, finely chopped

    1 x 420g can reduced-salt and sugar baked beans

    150g mushrooms, sliced

    16 cherry tomatoes, halved

    4 medium slices wholemeal bread

    4 tsp lower-fat spread

    Freshly ground black pepper


    Put the pepper and spring onions into a large saucepan with 3 tbsp of water.

    Cook for 2-3 minutes over a low heat, until the water has evaporated.

    Add the beans, mushrooms and cherry tomatoes to the saucepan and heat gently for 5-6 minutes, stirring often, until the beans are piping hot.

    Meanwhile, toast the bread.

    Spread each piece with 1 tsp of lower-fat spread.

    Pile the beans on to the toast and serve, sprinkled with black pepper.
