DIY Baked Beans

June 15, 2022

I never eat baked beans from a tin but I find these addictive and so easy to make.

Serves 4
Cook time: 15 minutes


  • 2 tsp olive oil
  • 3 rindless bacon rashers, finely chopped
  • 250 ml / 1 cup passata
  • 125 ml / 1/2 cup water
  • 1 tbsp golden syrup
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 400g tin cannellini beans, drained & rinsed
  • 2 tbsp chopped parsely


  1. Heat oil in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Add bacon and onions. Cook stirring occasionally for 5 minutes until bacon is crisp and onion is soft.
  2. Add passata, water, golden syrup and paprika and stir until well combined. Simmer, stirring occasionally, for 5 minutes or until the mixture thickens.
  3. Add cannellini beans and cook stirring for 3 minutes or until heated through. Stir in parsley, season with salt and pepper.
