These are really nice, sweet and smokey and easy to make.
I can't see why you couldn't add some chunky bacon or ham to the mix if you wanted to.
1 tablespoon oil
1/2 onion, finely diced
2 cloves of garlic, minced
1 tablespoon tomato puree
1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika
1/4 teaspoon dried thyme
1 tablespoon brown sugar
1 tablespoon soy sauce
4oog can of cannellini beans, drained and rinsed
100 grams passata
Heat the oil in a saucepan, and add onion and garlic. Cook over medium heat for 5 minutes until translucent.
Add the tomato puree,paprika, thyme, sugar and soy sauce, and cook for a few more minutes.
Add the beans and passata, and simmer for 5 minutes, until hot and thickened a little.
Season with pepper. Taste to see if you need a little salt.
