Black beans with feta on a night in

I crave simplicity in the midst of chaos. This is especially true of Friday nights when all I want to do is get home as quickly as possible and is stay in, drinking green tea and eating wholesome food. Certainly no alcohol. By no means am I suggesting that I’m a saintly clean liver. Only on Fridays. Beans, rice and lentils all epitomize this simplicity that I am looking for on this, the most hectic, hysterical day of the week (in London at any rate)

 Fry the chopped onion in oil and after a couple of minutes then add the drained black beans and chopped tomato. Season with paprika, a pinch of cinnamon, garlic salt and pepper. Squeeze in half lemon. Simmer for about 5min or until the tomato disintegrates. Add the feta and more freshly ground black pepper before eating with bread, tortillas or rice. Preferably in bed with a cat by your side. While it’s raining outside
