Oven Baked Beans

These taste so different from the usual tinned baked beans that I don't think they should really be called the same thing. I still like tinned baked beans, but the baked beans in this recipe are nicer, even if they do require more than 3 minutes in the microwave.


  • 2 onions, finely chopped
  • 1 tbsp sunflower oil
  • 3 tsp dark brown sugar
  • 1 tsp smoked paprika
  • 2 cloves, finely ground
  • 1 tin (390g) of chopped tomatoes
  • 1 tsp garlic puree or 4 cloves of garlic finely chopped
  • 150ml water
  • two 400g tins of haricot beans (with a drained weight of about 220g each)


  1. Preheat the oven to 150 degrees.
  2. Fry the onion in the sunflower oil until it starts to soften.
  3. Add all the remaining ingredients, apart from the beans, and mix well.
  4. Bring to the boil and then simmer for 10 minutes.
  5. Add the haricot beans to the tomato sauce and stir well.
  6. Transfer to a large oven proof dish.
  7. Bake in the oven uncovererd for an hour and a half.
  8. Enjoy with a fried egg or on some toast.

Serves 3 to 4.
