My late sister-in-law was an American war bride and, when she gave a party (which was quite frequently) she always made delicious baked beans from scratch. I have often thought about doing this but, when I watched a New Zealand Lockdown cooking programme recently where the beans used were a tin of cannelini and a tin of kidney beans I printed off the recipe.
We have Doug's grandson, his partner and 1 year old coming over at the weekend and they have recently become vegans so it seemed to be the ideal time to try this recipe. I cooked it today using onion, garlic, a tin of tomatoes, herbs, paprika and cumin. We tried just a little and think it will be great at the weekend with some roast vegetables and some hummus which I will make tomorrow. I will also make a vegan crumble for afters. and serve it with coconut yoghurt.
I also made some vegetable soup which we are about to eat. I had planned to make the hummus but, as usual I planned too many jobs. Still, there is always tomorrow.
