Baked beans are a bit of an English staple, they've always been a firm favourite amongst my family. This is my attempt at making my own using fava beans. They're maybe not as sweet as the tinned variety, but that doesn't mean they're not rich and flavourful. The beans need to be pre-soaked overnight.
These are awesome on toast, with mash, with a jacket potato, with pork chops, as part of a full English or even with just bread and butter.
I turned this into a simple, but really tasty, pork and beans recipe by adding in a couple of teaspoons of cumin and dried coriander with the tomato puree and paprika, and then throwing in some browned off, 1 inch chunks of pork belly prior to placing the dish in the oven. - 08 May 2018
