Tap For Ingredients


  1. Peel and finely chop the onion. Deseed and slice the pepper, then scrub and dice the potato. Chop the pork into bite-sized pieces.
  2. Heat the oil in a large pan on a medium heat, add the onion and pork and fry for 5 minutes, or until the meat is browned all over and the onions are starting to soften.
  3. Add the pepper and potato and fry for 1 or 2 minutes, then pour in the tomatoes.
  4. Drain and add the beans, followed by the paprika and bouillon powder (see tip). Bring to the boil, then reduce to a simmer for 35 to 40 minutes, or until all the ingredients are nicely cooked.
  5. Pick and finely chop the parsley and sprinkle over the top. For more information on stages of complementary feeding, click here.


If cooking for your baby, leave out the paprika and bouillon powder until after you’ve have taken out your baby’s portion. Allow to cool, then chop or mash to the desired consistency.
