  • Soak the dry haricot beans overnight with 2 Tbsp sea salt. The next day, cook them in a pressure cooker for about 20 minutes on in a saucepan for about 45 minutes, or until soft, but not mushy. The cooking time depends on the age of the beans, the older the beans the longer it will take.
  • While you are cooking the beans, make the sauce : heat the oil over medium heat in a medium saucepan.
  • Add the chopped garlic, and fry, stirring, for about 1 minute, until fragrant.
  • Add the chopped carrot and celery and cook for about 15 minutes, until soft.
  • Add the tomatoes, the ketchup, soy sauce, molasses and mustard, if using. Add 1 cup water, stir to combine and simmer for about 30 minutes until the sauce thickens.
  • Take the saucepan off the heat, allow to cool a little, then blend until smooth.
  • Return the sauce to the saucepan, season to taste, adding a little more ketchup if you like, then add the cooked and drained beans and simmer for a further 10 minutes.
  • Finally, if you wish, you may transfer the beans in sauce to a baking dish and bake in a moderately hot oven for about 20 minutes.
  • Serve as part of a traditional British breakfast, on toast or on baked potatoes.
