This is my favourite way to make baked beans for breakfast! It’s great as a breakfast, for lunch or as a easy quick nutritious dinner. Yum!

The Best Baked Beans


  • 1 can cannellini or butter beans, soak over night with a strip of Kombu.
  • 1 can chopped tomatoes
  • 1 punnet cherry tomatoes, cut into quarters
  • 1 T. tomato paste
  • 1 red onion, chopped
  • 1 T. malt vinegar
  • 1 T. paprika
  • ½ t. turmeric powder
  • to serve: salt, pepper and chopped fresh parsley

How to make The Best Bake Beans:

  1. Soak your beans with plenty of water overnight with a piece of kombu. In the morning drain out the water and discard the kombu.
  2. To make your sauce in a sauce pan combine all ingredients except beans (and salt, pepper & parsley) and simmer for 15 minutes or until the sauce becomes thickened (not watery).
  3. Now stir your sauce into your beans. Pour the mixture into a crock pot (or shallow cake tin as I used) and bake at around 180 degrees F for around 20-30 minutes or until the beans are soft and the sauce has thickened up a bit more.
  4. Serve your beans on a piece of sourdough bread with butter and then top the beans with salt, pepper and parsley.

Notes: you can prepare the sauce the night before so after you’ve drained the beans all you need to do is combine the beans and sauce and bake.
