My favourite snazzy beans

Sep 25, 2014

These beans, otherwise known as the “snazzy beans” used to be something my old housemate Lisa and I would always rustle up on a Sunday morning and enjoy with a poached or boiled egg or two with some sautéed garlic mushrooms and some greens of some sort, usually spinach.

You can make snazzy beans as snazzy and as spicy as you like but the recipe here gets it just right.

In all my days of snazzy bean making I’ve also added olives, sundried tomatoes, fresh coriander and parsley and so many other in the fridge ingredients but this is the basic recipe for you and you can add to it as you please!

Looking forward to spending more Sundays with these snazzy beans in my life and I’m glad I’ve shared them with you so your Sundays can be equally enjoyed in the food department! Let me know how you get on and share your photos with me of you sat around the breakfast table enjoying your bean feast!

All the healthy best,
