    Homemade beans on toast are a filling meal. The beans are packed full of protein, making it an ideal option for lunch or dinner too. We served our beans on slices of fresh sourdough. Swap for wholemeal bread, or even just simply on a slice of classic white bread instead.


    • 1tbsp olive oil
    • 1 small onion, chopped
    • 1 garlic clove, crushed
    • 150g baby cherry tomatoes
    • 400g tin butter beans, drained
    • 415g tin Heinz Five Beanz in tomato sauce
    • Handful parsley
    • 4 slices buttered toast


    • Gently heat the olive oil in a large frying pan with the onion and garlic for 5 mins, until softened.

    • Quarter the cherry tomatoes and tip into the pan. Gently cook down for 5 mins, then stir through the butter beans and Heinz Five Beanz and continue cooking for 3-4 mins.

    • Season with salt and freshly ground black pepper, then stir through the parsley. Pour the bean mixture over hot buttered toast and serve.
