Baby baked beans

Ingredients:

  • 3/4 cup navy beans
  • 1 large tomato
  • 1 small red onion

Steps:

  1. soak navy beans in water overnight or longer – I soaked approximately 20 hours and after cooking the beans were still a bit crunchy, not like canned baked beans. But then again, I would think its the canned ones that are “wrong” and not my homemade version 🙂
  2. dice onions finely
  3. remove tomato peel – putting the tomato in boiling water for 10 seconds or so makes this incredibly easy
  4. pan fry onions with half a teaspoon of butter
  5. Add tomato and fry till soft
  6. Place beans into slow cooker, top with onion tomato mixture then add just enough of the water used to soak the beans to cover the beans
  7. Simmer for at least 2 hours – I simmered for about 3
  8. Blend.

These were so yummy I am actually craving for them as I write this. The washed out photo doesn’t do it justice at all.
