Making Beans Better


I am probably right when I guess that almost everyone probably has a tin of beans in their pantry. I mean they are a store cupboard staple and beans on toast is such an easy win when you cant be bothered to cook.

But, they can be a little bland and I find some brands can be very sweet (my tin has 21g sugar in!) so here are a few ideas to make your beans the best they can possibly be. (use whatever ingredients you fancy but this is what i’m having tonight). Bonus! only needs one pan

Finely chop half a red onion and fry in a saucepan in a little olive oil. Chop and add some chorizo and one clove of garlic. Once the onion is softened to your taste add 1/4 tsp chilli powder (or whatever your spicy taste), 1tsp paprika, splash of balsamic vinegar and stir. Add in the tin of beans, mix and heat till done. You can also add a little tomato puree if you like.

I had a jacket sweet potato rather than toast (super yum, seasonal and only 10 ish mins to microwave). Top with grated cheese, pepper and a sliced spring onion. I would usually make a salad with a jacket but this time its broccoli
