There’s something so comforting about a big pan of smoky baked beans. I grew up with Heinz baked beans and I still love them – I have such a strong association of cosy weekends and when I’ve been away for long periods of time they are one of the things I can’t wait to get back to eat. Mmm with some good and thick sourdough toast or on a slow baked potato and I’m in heaven.
But you know what I think they are even better if you make them yourself and of course you know exactly what’s good into them! Dramatically less sugar and salt and extra goodies like mixed beans and more of a smoky flavour.
Essentially the principle is the same – tomatoes, beans, onions, garlic, smoked paprika and some sweetness and acidity.
As this makes a pretty big batch they’re perfect for eating in so many ways; on toast, with rice, a crispy jacket potato, plus I also like to add some soy chunks for added protein and texture..
These guys would be absolutely perfect for bonfire night with potatoes on the bonfire, corn on the cob and crunchy slaw… yum!
