  • Add the oil to a large casserole dish, fry the onion and garlic over a medium heat for about 5 mins until starting to brown.  Add the spices, stir well and cook for another minute.   Add the rest of the ingredients up to the black beans, cover and gently simmer for 15 - 20 mins until the squash is cooked.   Add the blackbeans and cook for a further 5 mins.   Season to taste.
