Borlotti Baked Beans



If you grow your own Borlotti Beans, this is an ideal recipe to use them.
Just pod them when they’re ready to pick, and freeze them until you are ready to use them.

You’ll never buy a tin of beans again!


8oz./200gms of beans, or two big handfuls

1 onion, chopped

4oz./100gms mushrooms, roughly chopped

1 tbsp. treacle [optional]

1tbsp. curry powder

1 – 2 tbsp. tomato puree

 Around 1/4pint of vegetable stock, or a Veg. OXO cube and water



Simmer the beans for around 20 minutes, then drain.

Microwave the onion and mushrooms for 2 – 3 minutes with a drizzle of oil – a large lidded pyrex dish is brilliant for this.

Tip the beans on to the onion and mushrooms, and stir in.

Add the rest of the ingredients, stir and then cook in the oven at a medium temperature, around 150 degrees, for around 30 minutes.

Taste and add more spice / water as necessary.

The sauce will darken and become more luscious with cooking.
