These beans are not your ordinary baked beans! They’re packed with flavor – including herbs, garlic, and lots of rich tomato sauce. Beans are full of protein, so they make for a filling breakfast or lunch that will energize you for the rest of the day. Plus, there are lots of veggies hidden in the sauce, so it’s a good way of meeting your daily vegetable quota if you or your kids are picky. Serve up these beans on toast, over potatoes, or whatever you like!
