SPICY BREAKFAST BEANS
This recipe is one of my favourite breakfasts to make when I have a bit more time in the morning, but they also work perfectly as a brunch, lunch of dinner. They are made with a rich and tangy tomato sauce and have a kick of spice from the harissa paste.
You can enjoy these baked beans on toast, in a jacket potato or as a side with your favourite meal. The recipe keeps well in the fridge for up to a week and reheats well, so you can make these beans ahead of time.

Ingredients (serves 2)
1 onion, thinly sliced
2 cloves garlic, crushed
1 tin chopped tomato
1 tbsp harissa paste
1 tsp smoked paprika
1 tbsp tomato puree
Pinch of salt & black pepper
1 tin cannellini beans, drained and rinsed
Chopped fresh parsley
4 slices of crusty sourdough bread
Heat a pan, and add 1 tbsp olive oil. Add the chopped onions and garlic and allow to cook until soft (you may want to add a dash of water)
Add in the smoked paprika, harissa paste and season well. Give everything a stir. Next add in the chopped tomatoes, tomato paste and cannellini beans. Mix well, and then reduce the heat and allow to cook through for 15-20 minutes. The mixture should thicken up.
Meanwhile Pop the sourdough bread into a toaster. Top with homemade herby pesto or hummus, and then pile on the spicy beans. Top with fresh parsley and a sprinkle of chilli flakes.
I hope you enjoy this as much as I do :-)
