Ingredients

Method

  • STEP 1

    In a microwaveable bowl, toss together the garlic and onion in the oil with a small pinch of salt. Add the bacon and microwave on High for 30-40 secs to soften the onion and garlic, and gently crisp the bacon. Tip in the carrot, herbs, baked beans and tomato purée, along with 1 tbsp water. Crumble over the stock cube and stir well.

  • STEP 2

    Cover with cling film and pierce in the centre. Microwave on High for 2 and a half mins to heat through, then remove and stir well. Leave to stand for 1 min before serving.

RECIPE TIPS
JACK'S TOP TIPS

Never ever, ever put anything metal in the microwave, or any crockery with metal trim. Metal reflects the microwaves and catches fire – with my firefighter hat on, it’s a common cause of kitchen fires, and kitchen fires quickly turn into house fires. If in doubt, leave it out.

JACK'S TOP TIPS

When cooking dishes with a high liquid content, such as pasta, rice or soups, cover with cling film and pierce to contain the liquid and allow the heat to escape – this prevents messy explosions! I stand anything like this in a bowl to catch any escaping liquid and keep the bottom of my microwave clean.
