Home made baked beans

Servings 8


  • 6 cups cooked cannellini or Navy beans (2 cups dried or 3 cans)
  • 2 cups veggie stock
  • 1 cup water
  • 2 tsp worcestershire sauce
  • 6 tbsp ketchp or tomato sauce
  • 2 tbsp tomato paste
  • 3 tbsp brown sugar
  • 1 tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • ½ tsp garlic powder
  • ½ tsp onion powder or 1 chopped onion
  • ½ tsp black pepper
  • 1 tsp salt

Sauce thickening

  • 8 tsp cornflour or cornstarch
  • ¼ cup water


  • Place all Baked Beans ingredients in a pot (except beans) and stir, then add beans.
  • Bring to a simmer, then lower heat to medium low and simmer for 20 minutes, without the lid. Stir every now and then so the beans don't catch on the bottom of the pot.
  • To thicken sauce: Mix cornflour with water. Pour into pot while stirring, then cook for 2 minutes until sauce thickens – it will thicken quickly
  • Check for salt: taste and add more salt if needed.
  • Serve it the traditional way – piled over hot buttered toast. Or ladle into bowls, eat with a spoon and dunk in hot crusty bread!
