RED RICE AND BEANS:
1. Heat the oil in a large, lidded pan and add the onion, garlic and chilli with a pinch of salt. Gently cook for a few minutes, until starting to soften.
2. Add the spices to the pan and fry, stirring, for a minute or so until aromatic.
3. Add the remaining ingredients to the pan and stir well to combine. Bring to a simmer, cover and leave to cook for 30 minutes over a low heat.
4. After 30 minutes the rice should be almost cooked and most of the liquid absorbed. Taste to check the seasoning and turn off the heat. Leave to stand for a further 10 minutes before fluffing the rice up with a fork.
