Homemade Baked Beans

I tried my hand at something I’ve wanted to have for an age . . . baked beans without the salt and sugar dose to do me a month. This recipe is based on the Boston Baked Beans from the best veggie cookbook I’ve ever read.


  • 250g haricot (or cannellini or kidney or butter) beans
  • 1 small red onion
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 1 can of chopped tomatoes
  • 1 tbsp treacle
  • 1 tsp honey


Finely chop the onion and crush the garlic and fry for a few minutes until they soften.

Add the treacle – let it drizzle off the spoon into the pan. Things will get a bit sticky for a moment, stir in the honey and reduce the heat to medium.

After a few minutes add the beans to the mixture and simmer for a few minutes.

Pour in the chopped tomatoes and reduce to the desired consistency (about 15-20 mins).
