Glazed beans on toast

BY: JANET CRAIG

Beans on toast may be a hardcore British comfort food, but that doesn’t mean we can’t glam up the traditional dish on our side of the pond. Here’s Janet Craig’s take on a UK classic – and no worries mate – you’ll be chuffed at how easy this is to make!

Easy Fall Recipe

Ingredients

  • 1 can white kidney / cannellini beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 small onion, minced
  • 2 cloves of chopped garlic
  • 2 bay leaves,
  • ½ cup white wine ( I use Vermouth)
  • Salt and  pepper, parsley to garnish
  • 2 slices whole grain bread
  • 2 tsp unsalted butter
  • 2 tsp honey or maple syrup
  • For meat eaters: 4 slices of bacon or grilled pancetta

Directions

  1. Lightly sauté onion and garlic in 1 tbsp oil until translucent
  2. Add the rinsed beans to the pan with wine & seasonings. Turn up the temperature  on medium to simmer until wine is evaporating.
  3. Toast the bread & spread with butter & honey or maple syrup
  4. Plate the now glazed beans on toast topping with as much bacon as desired.
