This is a twist on the classic Boston baked beans, which are usually made with pork. Smoked paprika adds similar depth of flavour without the meat. This makes a great breakfast on brisk mornings if you get it cooking the night before, but it’s also great for dinner.


  • 375 g (13 oz) dried great northern, navy or haricot beans, soaked overnight, drained and rinsed


Put the beans, onion, stock and 500 ml (17 fl oz/2 cups) of water in a saucepan and bring to the boil. Cook for
