An easy vegetarian recipe

A delicious vegetarian dish for all the family. It's easy to prepare and contains nutritious ingredients that won't cost the earth and are likely to already be in your cupboard, making it a great everyday recipe. The beans and tomotoes combine deliciously with the fluffy cheesy potato topping to make a delicious, filling meal. I use a mixture of sweet potatoes and ordianary ones, but if you miss out the sweet potatoes you might need to add a little milk when mashing them, if they are a bit dry. This is tasty served with peas and sweetcorn or other cooked vegetables of your choice. In fact if you read on, you will find a list of dried bean varieties. You could try replacing the red kidney beans with another variety, although I couldn't guarantee the results!
