I served this with green beans, carrots and baby potatoes (you will need to point the potatoes). Generally I would season the dish during the cooking process but gammon can be salty, so in this case I would season at the end.

Serves 4

3 1/2 points per serving

Ingredients

Low fat cooking spray

2 onions, chopped

250g (0z) thick gammon steak, all fat removed and cut into bite sized chunks

2 large garlic cloves, chopped

2 teaspoon of mixed herbs

1 x 400g can chopped tomatoes

1 x 400g can low sugar and low salt baked beans

1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika

Salt and freshly ground black pepper

Method

1. Heat a large lidded saucepan and spray with the cooking spray. Add the onions and cook, stirring for 4 minutes, adding a tablespoon of water if necessary to prevent them from sticking.

2. Add the gammon and cook for another 3 minutes. Stir in the garlic and cook for a further 1 minute.

3. Add the herbs, tomatoes, beans, paprika and 100ml (3 1/2 fl oz) water and bring to the boil, stirring occasionally. Reduce the heat, and simmer, half-covered, for 10 minutes until the sauce has thickened slightly. Season to taste.

4. Serve in warm bowls.
