Baked beans don't get the attention they deserve! They're wholesome, nutritius and delicious, especially if home made!

1 small red onion, peeled and thinly sliced

1 clove garlic, peeled and crushed

1 split red chillies(optional)

100g pancetta, sliced

2 tbsp olive oil

½ tsp NoMU African Heat

A generous pinch of sugar

4 large ripe tomatoes, diced

2 x 400g cans butter beans,drained and rinsed

Handful fresh parsley

NoMU Just Pepper

NoMU Just Salt

Preheat the oven to 180°C.


Place the onion, the garlic, the chillies and the pancetta into an ovenproof small casserole dish. Drizzle with olive oil, season with salt, African Heat and a pinch of sugar and toss well to coat. Place the dish into the oven for about 20 minutes, or until the pancetta is crisp and the onions are slightly caremalized. Add the tomatoes and return the dish to the oven for 10 more minutes. Add the beans, and return to the oven one final time and leave to bake for about 20 minutes. Season to taste.

Serve the baked beans straight from the oven, on freshly toasted farm bread, topped with lots of freshly chopped parsley.

Wine suggestions

Iona Sauvignon Blanc - its fruity and flinty chalky flavours breaks the slight

acidity of the tomatoes and marries well with the creaminess of the beans…AND its just delicious!
