Method Chop the garlic, fry in the pan in olive oil.
Add the cherry tomatoes whole, add half a cup of water, cover and simmer.
After 10 minutes add half a flat teaspoon of cayenne pepper.
Simmer for another 10 minutes, add water if required.
Blitz and serve.
Serve Crusty bread, croutons, a sprinkle of cheese. If you find this too hot it can be cooled with a spoonful of sour cream, greek yoghurt or cream cheese.
Open and drain the tin of beetroot, cut into halves or quarters if required. Open tin of lentils and rinse and drain thoroughly. Add to beetroot. Open tin of mandarins and drain. Add to mixing bowl. Add in vinegar – if you have flavoured vinegar – raspberry or balsamic vinegars work well in this recipe. Season with salt and pepper.
Chill and serve as a side dish or lunch. Goes well with feta cheese.
