No need to buy baked beans in a can, here is an easy, cheap and super tasty way of making them at home! Of course this guarantees you wont get the stupid amount of sugar in tinned baked beans. Did you know one average serving of a leading baked bean brand has 13gr of sugar?! That’s almost four spoons of processed sugar you’ve got on your toast (and we all know how bad sugar is for you).
This is something i make on Saturdays in order to have in the fridge for a week (or in the freezer for ages!) for those sunday breakfasts or those i-dont-know-what-to-have-for-lunch-and-CBA-to-cook days. Only one cup of dried beans makes about 5 servings of baked beans, so this is a good (and cheap!) thing to cook up. Although it takes just over an hour to make, its not like you have to actually do anything for that time, the oven does most of it for you! They are BAKED beans after all.
Homemade Baked beans are supremely healthy due to the antioxidants of the tomato and garlic, alongside the protein and fibre of the beans. Paired with a complex carb, its low GI and will keep your energy levels at bay throughout the day.
Serving suggestions: On thick toasted greek sourdough bread is my favourite way of having it! But you can also serve atop of a jacket potato, or even pair this with the previous Tofegg Scramble recipe, toast, fried mushrooms and tomatoes and make yourself a good’ol sunday english breakfast!
* I used unrefined brown sugar
