serves 2-4 

1 tablespoon olive oil 
125 grams bacon, diced 
1 pepper 
1 medium onion, roughly chopped 
2 clove garlic, chopped 
1 teaspoon smoked paprika, sweet (or half teaspoon paprika) 
225 grams canned chopped tomatoes 
400 grams tinned butter beans, or chickpeas 
20 grams chopped parsley, or 5-6 green cabbage leaves, finely shredded

Heat a wok and add the olive oil. Add the bacon, onion and pepper. Fry, stirring occasionally, for 7-8 minutes until the pepper and onion start to brown. Add the garlic, pimenton (or paprika) and cook for 1 minute. Add the chopped tomatoes and butter beans. Stir well and cook for another 10 minutes, adding 3-4 tablespoons of water if the sauce gets a bit dry. If you're using greens, stir them in 5 minutes before serving up or add the parsley just before serving. Serve it with a green salad.
