For secret santa at my work last Christmas I received Matt Preston's recipe book.
To be honest not a lot of the recipes have appealed to me, but this one for baked beans did sound delicious, and its so simple.
Firstly you cook off the bacon and onion.
Next goes in tinned tomatoes, and I decided to also add zucchini and mushroom.
What makes this super delicious (and not so good for you!) is the maple syrup (1/3 cup), Worcestershire sauce (2 Tbsp) and brown sugar (1 Tbsp) you add next.
Along with cannellini beans, bay leaf, water and some seasoning it is cooked in the oven covered for an hour and a half.
It is then uncovered, sprinkled with sugar and baked for another half an hour.
We served it with some homemade sourdough and oh my, it was tasty.
