Braised white beans and toast

Beans are a great source of natural protein and who doesn’t love fresh cut green onions. I can’t think of a better combination. This dish is a simple and fast way to get a meal when you are on the go.

  • 2 tbsp of preferred cooking oil
  • 1 medium onion finely diced
  • 4 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 cup of tomato purée
  • 1 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1 Tbsp of onion powder
  • 1 Tbsp of brown sugar
  • Squeeze of lemon juice
  • 1 tbsp of soy sauce
  • White beans drained (240g when drained)


  • Heat the oil in a saucepan, and add the onion and garlic. Cook over medium heat for 5 minutes until soft and translucent.
  • Add the tomato purée, paprika, brown sugar and soy sauce, and cook for 3 minutes.
  • In a separate pot bring seasoned water to a boil and cook the pasta (until almost cooked through drain add a splash of olive oil to keep the noodle from sticking to each other) (save pasta water)
  • Add the beans and pasta, and simmer for at least 5 minutes, until the mixture is piping hot and the sauce has thickened a little. The bubbles get smaller and should coat the liquid will coat the back of a spoon. If it seems too thick, add some pasta water to thin it out.
  • Season to taste black pepper, and you may also add a pinch of salt. You probably won’t need salt because of the soy sauce.
  • Add scallions for toppings. Serve warm with toasted bread.
