Recipe adapted slightly from the March 1998 issue of BBC Vegetarian Good Food. I usually do the first frying of the onions, peppers and mushrooms in a good non-stick frying pan, to avoid having to be too rough with the baby onions - it's nice if they stay roughly in one piece - and then transfer to a stove-top casserole.
1. Fry the onions in the oil for 5 minutes or more, until beginning to brown. Add the pepper, mushrooms and garlic, and cook 5 minutes more.
2. Add the tomatoes, tomato puree, liquid, beans and oregano. Bring to the boil, reduce heat and simmer for 15 minutes covered, then 15 minutes uncovered.
Nice served with rice or roast potatoes; the original recipe suggested garlic bread.
