4 tbsp milled seeds
3 tbsp roasted seeds
light olive oil

1. Add the carrot, celery, onion, garlic and green pepper to a large saucepan over low heat with olive oil and cook for 10 mins until softened. Stirring occasionally.

2. Add tomato puree, chipotle paste, soy sauce and stir for 30 seconds, then add the drained beans. Stir fry for a minute. Add in the chopped tomatoes.

3. Add the bouillon and milled seeds with 400ml of hot water and simmer for 20 minutes.
