About this recipe: Tempt children to enjoy vegetables with this easy leave-to-cook dish of vegetables and baked beans spiced up with barbecue sauce and with a top layer of melting smoked cheese and sliced potatoes. Delicious!
*Any combination of prepared frozen, blanched fresh, or leftover cooked vegetables can be used for this hotpot. *To add extra protein, use frozen soya beans instead of the peas or green beans. *For potatoes, use peeled sweet potatoes, blanching them for just 3 minutes and adding 1 tsp lemon juice to the cooking water to prevent them from discolouring.
This was delicious. My 7 year old made the bean and veg sauce by himself (with supervision obviously) and was so proud of himself that he produced a lovely meal. We made it for my sisters who were staying and one of them is a vegetarian...it was enjoyed by everyone including a veggie phobic hubby 😁😁😁😁😁 next time we are going to try adding some smokey bacon because we do loves the meat. 😆 - 20 Apr 2015
Wow! I did not expect this to be as tasty as it was! I thought it was "kids food" but my husband I and I both loved it and it will be a regular at our house. I used regular tomato paste and didn't have BBQ sauce so I used ketchup and added cumin, cayenne, garlic, and pepper to get the taste. - 23 Nov 2011
A real surprise, easy and quick to make and a lovely change to the normal casseroles. The combination of bbq sauce and smoked cheese is really yummy. Will definitely make this again. - 29 Sep 2015
