Tuesday Food Blog - Spicy beans on toast

An interesting meal for lunch today. It is a solid demonstration of a pantry that is used and replenished on a 'needs must' basis. In other words there is never anything to throw away!
I hadn't shopped for this week so it was a case of haricots with a tomato jou on scorched wholemeal bread, or a variation thereof.

I'm having fun with the Blogger application this morning so I must apologise if the words and pictures appear rather like a piece of Dahlian art!

So spicy beans on toast and I must say that for those curry freaks this is one way in which you can get that kick without enormous outlay.



Ingredients

For the beans

  • 200g/7oz baked beans
  • 1 garlic clove, crushed
  • 1 tbsp soft brown sugar
  • pinch dried chilli flakes
  • 1 tbsp soy sauce

For the bruschetta

  • 4 thick slices ciabatta
  • 110g/4oz cheddar, cut into four slices
  • 55g/2oz streaky bacon, cut into strips and fried until crisp
There is little point in writing instructions as in more complex meals but this is a case of mixing the additives to the beans in a pan and warming them up while toasting the bread and sprinkling on the cheese and melting that before serving.

The end result is very tasty!

God Bless
