I love comfort food and I believe in balance and also combining foods. Baked beans are full of fibre and protein so combine this with some raw spinach and coriander and you have a really tasty meal at anytime.

I love comfort food and I believe in balance and also combining foods. Baked beans are full of fibre and protein so combine this with some raw spinach and coriander and you have a really tasty meal at anytime.

Method

  1. Chop up some fresh herbs I usually use coriander, but you could use sage, thyme, chillies, rosemary and also chorizo which is yummy.
  2. Open the baked beans empty into the saucepan and heat it up, you can alter the intensity of the flavours of the herbs/spices in this dish depending on when you add them. So if you add them throughout the cooking time it will have a stronger flavour then if you add it at the end (This is a good tip if you are using chillies adding them at the beginning may make the dish hotter then adding them at the end).
  3. Once the dish is hot then stir in the spinach so they will wilt slightly with the heat of the beans then just serve on toast. Yummy and quick.

Variations & Tips

Chorizo, Pepperami, leftover cooked meats, kale, cheese, garlic, ginger, grate some courgette or carrots, a fried egg either in the dish or fried on top. Let me know your ideas, lets pimp up our beans together.
