Prep, chop and weigh everything. Have all the ingredients laid out, ready to hand. Taking 10 minutes to do this now saves time and stress during cooking.

Heat a frying pan on medium heat and once hot add the oil and swirl to coat the pan. Carefully add the onion and fry on medium for 5 minutes.

After 5 minutes add the peppers and garlic and fry for a further 5 minutes.

Sprinkle in the cayenne, paprika, black pepper and stock cube and fry for 1 minute.

Add the falafel and fry for 2 minutes.

Pour in the tomatoes, black eyed beans and tomato puree. Squash the falafel into the sauce, stirring for a few minutes until incorporated and heated through.

Once cooked stir the rice into the veggies.

Finish with a sprinkle of fresh basil.

Heat the tortillas according to packet instructions, usually about 30 seconds. Serve with the guacamole, grated cheese and creme fraiche.
