  Onion 1 Large, finely chopped
  Garlic 2 Clove (10 gm), crushed
  Carrot 4 Ounce, grated (125 Gram)
  Sweetcorn 6 Ounce (Fresh / Frozen / Canned)
  Dill seeds 1 1⁄2 Teaspoon
  Chopped fresh marjoram 4 Teaspoon (2 Tablespoon)
  Porridge oats 4 Ounce (125 Gram)
  Egg 1
  Shoyu 30 Milliliter (2 Tablespoon)
  Black pepper 1⁄4 Teaspoon
  Bean stock 60 Milliliter (4 Tablespoon)
  Red pepper 1 Small, deseeded and cut into thin strips
  Green pepper 1 , deseeded and cut into thin strips
For sauce
  Carrots 8 Ounce, sliced (250 Gram)

  Yeast extract 1 Teaspoon
  Orange juice 60 Milliliter (4 Tablespoon)
  Chopped fresh parsley 30 Milliliter (2 Tablespoon)

1. Drain the beans. Place in a saucepan and cover with fresh water. Bring to the boil and boil fast for 10 minutes. Reduce the heat, cover and simmer for 30 minutes, or until the beans are soft. Drain, reserving the stock, and mash the beans while still warm.
2. Heat the oil and gently fry the onion and garlic for 5-7 minutes. Add the carrot and sweetcorn. If using frozen sweetcorn, defrost first; if using fresh sweetcorn, cook in boiling water for 5 minutes first. Rinse canned sweetcorn before using. Cook for a further 5 minutes.
3. Stir in the dill seeds, marjoram, mashed beans and porridge oats and mix well. Beat together the egg, shoyu and black pepper. Add to the bean mixture. Add enough stock to make a moist consistency.
4. Lightly oil a 2 lb (1kg) loaf tin. Lay half the strips of red and green pepper along the base. Top with half of the bean mixture. Then lay the rest of the pepper strips on top, finishing with the remaining bean mixture.
5. Bake in a preheated oven at Gas Mark 4,350°F, 180°C for 35-40 minutes. Leave in the tin for 5 minutes before turning out.
6. For the sauce, heat the oil in a pan and gently fry the onion for 5-7 minutes. Add the carrots and cook for a further 2-3 minutes.
7. Pour on the water or vegetable stock, add the yeast extract. Bring to the boil, cover and simmer for 10 minutes, until the carrots are tender. Remove from the heat. Cool slightly.
8. Puree the vegetables in a blender or food processor until smooth. Return to the pan, add the orange juice and parsley. Warm through gently, check the seasoning and serve on top of the loaf.
