Baked Beans

A great alternative to the traditional tinned variety these are a winner with all the family!


1 Onion

1 Garlic clove

1 tin Cannelini Beans, rinsed well

500ml passata


1 tsp sugar

Rosemary, finely chopped

(Chilli optional)


Finely chop onion and garlic & fry in coconut oil or butter until very soft. Add the passata, sugar, seasoning and rosemary and simmer on a low heat for 10 mins, blitz the sauce till smooth, place back on the heat and add cannelini beans, simmer for a further 10 mins or transfer to the oven at 180 for 10mins. The sauce should thicken nicely, if too thick just thin with a drop of water (or great place to stick in a little stock!). For a spicy version simply add fresh or dried chilli. Mix up the recipe another day with different beans, different herbs, or even a little chorizo or bacon for a tasty twist.
