These homemade Thermomix Baked Beans are rich, comforting and nutritious. Made with only a few ingredients, you can set and forget whilst the Thermomix does all the work.
I love Heinz baked beans but they're loaded with sugar and preservatives. These are a healthier version made from cannelloni beans, tomatoes, garlic, red onion, maple, paprika and a little apple cider vinegar. You could also use Navy beans if you find them in the shops.
Of course it's always handy to have a tin of baked beans stashed away in the pantry but if you have a little extra time then these baked beans are worth waiting for. You could always make them in advance and store them in the fridge for later.
I absolutely love mine for breakfast served on toast with bacon and eggs, or on top of a jacket potato and melted cheese - so delicious!
