Tinned Beans (Improved!)


Yes, I do eat tinned food—once in a while!  I do try to improve them though—in taste and nutrition.  With baked beans, I also try to capture the taste and texture of the tinned beans I grew up with—a bit sweet, with plenty of tomato sauce, and soft beans.


The tomatoes are simmering….

1 clove garlic (minced)
1 onion (julienned)
3 large salad tomatoes
1 tin of baked beans
sea salt
sugar (optional)
ground pepper
mixed herbs


The beans are in

1. Saute garlic and onion (you may wish, or not to caramelise the onions).
2. Add tomatoes. Cover and stir once in a while.  Wait until the juices run out.
3. Add the beans. Simmer for a few minutes until the beans turn soft (if you like it that way).  Stir once in a while.
4. And a pinch of salt. And a dash of sugar if desired.
5. Add pepper and mixed herbs to taste.


Boiling potatoes with a sprig of rosemary to add….
