Summer baked borlotti beans

For a shortcut you can use canned beans instead of soaking and cooking dried beans. If using canned beans though, be sure to rinse them well and drain them thoroughly before using.

Method

  • Sort through beans to remove any debris. Rinse beans and place them in a large bowl. Cover with cold water by a few inches and soak for 8 hours or overnight. Once soaked, drain beans, place in a large pot, and cover again with a few inches of water. Bring to a boil, lower heat and simmer until they are tender but not mushy, around 1 hour. Alternatively, cook the beans in a pressure cooker. Drain well.
  • Preheat oven to 180 degrees C.
  • In a large bowl, whisk together molasses, Worcestershire, mustard, tomato paste and vinegar. Add tomatoes, onion, bell pepper, garlic and beans and toss to coat.
  • Spoon into a large oven casserole and bake until the vegetables are very tender, about 1 hour.
