Homemade Baked Beans

Servings 4


  • 2 tins haricot beans in water (drained)
  • 2 tsp cornflour
  • 2 tbsp tomato purée
  • 400 mL water
  • coconut sugar and salt (to taste)
  • 1 scant tsp vinegar
  • 1/2 tsp paprika


  1. Mix the cornflour with a small amount of water to dissolve.

  2. Add the drained beans, tomato purée, the rest of the water plus the cornflour mixture to an oven proof dish with a lid. Cover and bake at 180C for about an hour. Stir from time to time.

  3. When the sauce has thickened add the coconut sugar (I use about 1 tsp), the salt (I use about 1/3 tsp), the vinegar and paprika. Serve.
