Beans, beans they’re good for your heart, beans, beans they make you….I’ll leave it there. The Monster is a massive fan of baked beans at the moment, which is great, I mean, they’re cheap, have lots of health benefits, are good sauce of protein, etc. Expect the delicious tinned ones you find in the supermarket are often high in salt and sugar for children. The good news is that that are actually super easy to make from scratch! And they freeze well too!

Ingredients:

  • 1 can of Cannellini Beans (or bean of your choice)
  • 1 can chopped tomatoes
  • 1/2 tablespoon dried sage
  • Dash of Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon of sugar (it really is needed to balance the acidity of the tomatoes)

Method

In a blender place the tomatoes, sage, sugar and Worcestershire sauce and blitz until smooth. Pour into a small sauce pan.

Drain the cannellini beans and add to the pan with the tomato sauce. Simmer on a low heat for 30-45 minutes until the sauce has thickened and the beans are tender.

That’s it, homemade healthy baked beans!

They will keep in the fridge for 4-5 days or you can divide into portions and freeze.

Reheat in a saucepan for a 5 minutes.

 

Enjoy
