Happy Baked Beans

Happy Baked Beans

  • 1 Jar Ally’s Tomato-Free Sauce
  • 1 Can Haricot Beans
  • 25g butter
  • 25g Plain Flour
  • Half a pint of vegetable stock

Gently melt the butter in a saucepan and add the flour to create a roux.  Cook the flour and butter mixture stirring continuously for approx 3 mins then gradually add the stock whilst continually stirring until you have a smooth silky golden mixture.

Add the Ally’s Tomato-Free Sauce and the drained beans to the saucepan and bring to the boil. Turn down to simmer and cook until the beans are soft.

Baked beans;  Done!   (I got “I love it!  Thanks Dad!” from my four year old daughter for these 🙂 )

For a spicy alternative, try adding curry spices, or chopped chorizo.  Scrummy!

Also, try replacing the haricot beans with large butter beans for Giants Baked Beans 😀

NOTE:  If you are using dried beans, please be sure to soak the beans in cold water for at least 8 hours prior to cooking, and be aware that they will take a lot longer to cook (the best way to cook the dried beans to use a casserole dish in the oven and bake for up to two hours, stirring every 20-30 minutes and adding extra water if necessary to prevent it from drying out).

      Hi Laura. Absoluately! Just make sure you let them cool down completely first and put them into a suitable freezable container. That’s actually a really good idea!
