1 onion, chopped
1 small bulb fennel, chopped
400g can haricot beans
1½ tbsp Cooks’ Ingredients Sundried Tomato Paste
2 tbsp black treacle
1 tsp brown miso paste
100g Taifun Smoked Tofu
1 clove garlic, crushed
15g vegan block butter alternative, softened
5g flat leaf parsley, finely chopped
100g baguette, cut into 4 long diagonal slices
1 tsp white wine vinegar
1. Preheat the oven to 200ºC, gas mark 6. Combine the onion, fennel, all the contents of the can of haricot beans, tomato paste, treacle, miso paste and a little seasoning in a flameproof casserole dish. Bring to the boil, cover with a lid and transfer to the oven for 25 minutes.
2. Preheat the grill to high. Mash the tofu in a bowl with a fork and beat in the garlic, vegan block and parsley. Toast the baguette on one side, turn the slices over and top with the tofu mixture, packing it down well. Grill for 2 minutes, or until beginning to colour.
3. Stir the vinegar into the beans, transfer to shallow bowls and serve topped with the tofu toasts.
Cook’s tip The savouriness of smoked tofu works well with the baked beans. If you have plain tofu, use this, adding a good pinch of smoked paprika with the garlic and vegan block. Tofu is a good source of protein and low in saturated fat. Replacing foods high in saturated fat with those higher in unsaturated fat can help to improve cholesterol levels.
