Homemade baked beans on rye

Cut out the sugar and make your own healthy baked beans from scratch at home. Chickpeas, mung beans and a squeeze of red curry paste and you won't go back. It also makes a great idea for meat-free Monday.

Serves: 4 people


1 can drained chickpeas
1 can chopped tomatoes
100g raw mung beans
4 slices rye bread
30g red curry paste
5ml olive oil


Place mung beans in a saucepan with 1 ½ cups of water and bring to the boil. Simmer for 30 minutes or until water has been absorbed and beans are tender. In a separate pan, heat olive oil and fry the curry paste until fragrant, then add the chickpeas, mung beans and the can of chopped tomatoes, and heat through. Season with salt and freshly ground black pepper and serve spoonfuls on slices of toasted rye bread.
