We’re cooking from scratch, we’re cooking comfort food – Boston style. Folks there prefer no fuss and honest home cooking and so do we. It doesn’t take much to whip up these rustic beans, and the paprika and sweet maple syrup are a match made in Massa-chusetts. See ya later tinned baked beans!

Preheat the oven to 200°C/180°C fan-forced. To prepare the ingredients, finely dice the brown onion and sweet potato (peeled). Peel and crush the garlic. Deseed the chilli and finely slice. Drain and rinse the cannellini beans. Wash the baby spinach. Pick the rosemary leaves and finely chop.


Heat the olive oil in a large pot or saucepan over a medium-high heat. Add the brown onion and cook for 2 minutes or until soft. Then add the sweet potato and cook for 5-10 minutes or until the vegetables have softened. Add the garlic, paprika, and birdseye chilli (leave it out if the kids don’t like the heat and simply stir through your meal in step 5) and cook for a further 2 minutes.

Add the cannellini beans, diced tomatoes, tomato paste, water, brown sugar (or maple syrup), rosemary and season with salt and pepper. Reduce to a low-medium heat and simmer for 20-25 minutes, or until all of the vegetables are tender. Add 1⁄2 cup of water if the mixture is too thick. Stir through the baby spinach in the last 2 minutes of cooking until wilted.
