Spicy Bean Pie

I have joined the Weight Watcher programme, so for now, most of my recipes will be suitable for the Weight Watcher points plan. I just have to work out some low fat cake recipes, now that is going to be a challenge!

I am going of track now, as I will be doing very few baking or preserve recipes, they will be mainly meals now for us poor people on a diet! Hope you enjoy the new style recipes......

6 points for the total recipe (veggie version)

1 carrot
½ butternut squash
1 red pepper
1 onion
1 small can baked beans
½ pack quorn fajita strips (or use a chicken breast if not veggie)
30g half fat cheddar, grated
1 teaspoon madras spices
couple of squirts of fry light

1.Peel and chop the butternet squash and carrot. Boil in salted water until cooked.
2.Lightly spray a non stick pan with fry light. Chop the onion and pepper and fry with the curry spices l until soft. If you are using chicken, cook the chicken with the veg.
3.If using quorn fajita strips, add to the veggie mix and cook for a few minutes until warmed through.
4.Mash the carrot and butternut squash together and drain off any excess water.
5.Heat the can of beans in a microwave. When hot put into an ovenproof dish.
6.Add the quorn and veg mix to the ovenproof dish and lightly stir to mix with the beans.
7.Top with the mash, and sprinkle with the grated cheese,
8.Grill until cheese is bubbling.

This is a large portion. If you are greedy you can have the lot, or split it into 2 portions and serve with extra zero point vegetables.

Freezes well.
