●Salt

●About24 cherry toma­toes

●1 tea­spoon saf­fron threads

1 Add the red pep­pers and mush­rooms to a large saucepan with the peas, beans, cayenne, pa­prika, gar­lic, the juice of 1 lemon, a gen­er­ous amount of olive oil and salt. Cook for about 5 min­utes, un­til the veg is start­ing to soften.
