Baked Beans in tomato sauce the fancy version. I had soaked the beans planning on using them at the weekend but change of plans meant they still needed eating so whipped up this soupy stew. Dinner watching Torchwood and Dr Who on BBC I-player my guilty geeky pleasure .
Tomato and Haricot Bean Soup
300g of dried haricot beans
300g of tinned plum tomatoes
1 clove of garlic finely chopped
1/2 small onion
1 pint of vegetable stock
Salt and Pepper
After soaking the beans for at least 8 hours
Cover the haricot beans with water a simmer for 30 minutes
Drain and add the tomatoes and vegetable stock
Finally add fresh or dried herbs , thyme , oregano
Simmer for a further 20 minutes
Of course I ended up using some of the wild garlic butter to finish it off and a few fresh wild garlic leaves.
