Put the pepper and spring onions into a large saucepan with 3 tablespoons of water. Cook for 2 to 3 minutes over a low heat, until the water has evaporated.


Add the beans, mushrooms and cherry tomatoes to the saucepan and heat gently for 5 to 6 minutes, stirring often, until the beans are piping hot. Meanwhile, toast the bread.

Spread each piece with the lower-fat spread. Pile the beans on to the toast and serve, sprinkled with black pepper.
