Method

  1. Heat grill to high. Stir the first six ingredients together in a medium pan. Bring to the boil, then turn down the heat and simmer for 4-5 mins.
  2. Meanwhile, spread the baguette slices over a baking sheet and slide under the grill. Toast on one side, turn over and sprinkle the second side with the cheese. Grill for another 1-2 mins until melted and golden brown. Season the beans to taste and serve over the cheesy toasts.

This was so lovely! I doubled the recipe and used two tins of black beans, one of kidney beans and one of butter beans. I also added a fair bit - an onion, two sticks of celery, about a tsp of cayenne pepper and a big splash of lea and perrins - came out beautifully!

Had this for my tea tonight - wasn't expecting it to be up to much and only chose it because I had all of the ingredients in the cupboard. Was actually quite nice with the baguettes and cheese - halved the vinegar as another review said it was maybe too much. Saved the rest to have with a jakcet spud for lunch tomorrow.

This has been one of my favourite quick, cheap meals since it first appeared in the magazine. I like to add some chopped red pepper and/or onion to the beans - ups the veg count nicely, and makes it extra tasty, too!
