Smoky Baked beans

With the cost-of-living crisis hitting hard, I’ve re-engineered some recipes so they’re super-cheap to make. Right now canned Kidney Beans are really budget-friendly, so they’re my bean of choice for todays meal. For the sauce, I use fresh tomatoes so the exact quantity can be used to reduce food wastage and save money. Talking of money, how much does this meal cost? Less than £1 for two!! More good news is that cheap meals don’t need to be dreary — zhuhz it up with toast trees (kids will love this) or some nice cookware 👀

Serves | 2

Prep | 5 mins

Cook | 10 mins

INGREDIENTS (all budget brands)

⁃ 1x tin of 400g red kidney beans in water, drained

⁃ 8x (approx 62.5g) cherry tomatoes

⁃ 1tbsp Smoked Paprika

⁃ 1tsp Parsley

⁃ 62.5ml cold tap water

to serve, 2 slices of toast


⁃ Preheat your oven to 180C. Using a food processor blitz everything but the beans for a few seconds. Add this tomato sauce and the beans to a small casserole dish and stir well to combine. Cook for 10 mins on the middle shelf and serve with warm toast

⁃ For a more substantial meal, serve alongside your favourite fajitas
