Try this tasty twist on a classic favourite that is budget friendly and great for feeding a crowd. Serve as a main meal on jacket potatoes or thick sliced toast or serve as a side to chicken, beef or just at a BBQ. After a bit of prep it all goes in one pot and simmers away by itself! Make them Boston baked beans by cooking bacon lardons with the onion until crisp and stirring a heaped tbsp of mustard in with the black treacle. Make double and freeze half to pull of for a speedy midweek meal.


  • 1tbsp olive oil
  • 1 large onion, finely chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 1tsp smoked paprika
  • 2x 400g cannellini beans, drained
  • 2x 400g kidney beans, drained
  • 50g dark brown sugar
  • 30ml black treacle
  • 400g chopped tomatoes
  • 300ml beef stock

You can cook these on the hob. Cover with a lid and simmer over a low heat, stirring frequently to make sure the beans at the bottom don't catch.


  1. Pre-heat oven to 180°C/350°F/Gas Mark 4. Heat the oil in a large oven proof dish and sauté the onion for 5 minutes until beginning to soften. Add the garlic and paprika and cook for a further 2 mins.
  2. Pour in both beans, sugar, black treacle, chopped tomatoes and beef stock. Bring to the boil then cover with a lid and transfer to the oven to bake for 2 hrs stirring every half hour.
  3. Serve on jacket potatoes or thickly sliced toast.
