I love this recipe because it is so tasty and so inexpensive, delicious as a snack on gf toast or with cornbread but also brilliant as a main dish just double the quantities and serve with boiled rice
- 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
- 1 onion, chopped
- 1 garlic clove, crushed
- 1 tablespoon tomato puree
- 400 g chopped tomatoes
- 100 ml vegetable stock
- 4 ounces bacon lardons
- 400 g of mixed white beans, rinsed and drained
- In a skillet, heat the oil and gently fry the onion and garlic for 5 mins until soft.
- Add the tom puree and cook for further 5 mins, stirring often.
- Add the chopped tomatoes and vegetable stock and bring to the boil.
- Reduce heat and cook out for 35-40 mins stirring occasionally.
- Meanwhile, in a saucepan fry the bacon lardons until crispy.
- Add the beans and sauce and stir together.

Simple, but great flavored bean recipe. This would be a great dish to take to a potluck.
