Preheat the oven to 160°C. Heat the oil in a large ovenproof casserole dish over medium heat. Add the onion and cook until softened, 4-5 mins, add the garlic, cumin and pancetta and cook 2 mins.

Add the tomatoes, sugar and water. Bring to the boil, then reduce the heat and simmer for 10 mins. Stir in the kidney beans and season with pepper and salt to taste. Place the lid on the casserole dish and bake it in the oven for 30 mins, checking and topping up the liquid if necessary after 15 mins.

Prior to serving, stir in the lime juice and sprinkle over the garnishes. Serve with sliced avocado and gluten-free toast.
