An easy recipe for homemade stove top baked beans with hidden vegetables. No baking required. Suitable for vegetarians and vegans.
Heat 1 tbsp olive oil in a large saucepan and fry one chopped onion over a medium heat until soft. Stir through 2 chopped cloves of garlic, cook for a further minute then add one diced yellow pepper.
Cook for 10 minutes or until the pepper has softened, before adding 1 tsp mustard powder, 1 tsp oregano and 1 tbsp maple syrup.
Stir well then add the 150g cooked butternut squash and 2 x 400g tins of chopped tomatoes. Blend until you have a smooth sauce - I find a hand held stick blender is ideal for this.
Stir through 3 x 400g tins of haricot beans and warm through.
