Ditch the can and get out the pan – homemade baked beans, here I am! One of the cool things about
making your own baked beans is that you decide what ingredients go in the pot. Using ultra-nutritious cannellini beans also means you retain bionic (super) powers for hours after you’ve eaten them!


  • Dash of olive oil
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • ½ tsp minced garlic
  • Ground pepper for seasoning
  • 2 x 425gm tins of cannellini beans, drained
  • 1 Tbsp maple syrup
  • 1 cup water
  • ½ cup tomato puree
  • 1 tsp mustard powder
  • Five-grain bread for toast


  1. In an electric fry pan, heat oil over a medium heat.
  2. Add onion, garlic, and pepper.
  3. Cook until onion is soft and starts to look clear. Keep stirring.
  4. Drain beans in a colander in the sink, and add to pan with ½ cup water.
  5. Simmer until beans have softened. If beans are not soft after 7 minutes, add ¼ cup more water and keep cooking.
  6. Add maple syrup, tomato puree, mustard powder and another ½ cup water.
  7. Simmer until sauce has thickened, then season to taste with a few rounds of ground pepper.
  8. Serve with toast, using cookie cutters to make interesting shapes.
