Around the world on a BEAN

Baked beans provide the perfect combo of hunger-busting protein and fibre. But you don’t have to limit yourself to the canned variety. By making your own, you can reduce salt and sugars – and create meals inspired by international flavours

How to soak beans

OVERNIGHT METHOD

Soak dried beans in cold water for at least 12 hr. Drain well and rinse.

QUICK-SOAK METHOD

Put the beans in a saucepan and cover with cold water. Bring to the boil, then cook for 1 min. Remove from the heat, cover with a lid and leave to soak for 1 hr, then drain. The beans are now ready to cook.

Cook’s tips

• Instead of dried beans, use 2 x 400g cans of cannellini beans in water with no added salt or sugar (drained).

• As an alternative to canned tomatoes, whiz 400g fresh vine tomatoes with 2tbsp tomato purée in a blender.

• To make the basic baked beans gluten-free, use gluten-free stock.
