Extra Protein Baked Beans

Is there anything more deliciously comforting than baked beans on toast? Whether it’s your favourite hangover cure or simply your go-to feel-good food, this recipe gives a healthier, protein-packed twist on the classic British beans we all love so much. Pile it on top of toast, load it on baked sweet potatoes or serve as part of a big family fry up.

Extra Protein Baked Beans



First, heat your oil in pan over a medium heat.

When hot, add in your chopped onion and crushed garlic and sauté for a few minutes until soft. At this point, add in all other ingredients except the protein and parsley garnish.

Once all ingredients have been added to your pan, bring the beans to a boil, before turning the heat down low. Once the heat has been reduced, stir in your protein.

Gently simmer your beans for 10 minutes on a low heat before serving with a garnish of parsley, crème fraiche or a sprinkle of feta.
