Gerald Quigley's Healthy Beans


Gerald says this recipe is a wonderful way to start your day because beanz meanz big benefits to you!



Gerald Quigley’s Healthy Breakfast Beans

•  Reduce bad-type cholesterol
•  Contain chemicals that inhibit cancer
•  Control insulin and blood sugar
•  Lower blood pressure
•  Regulate functions of the colon
•  Prevent and cure constipation
•  Prevent haemorrhoids and other bowel problems

And beautiful beans have a low GI rating (the energy is released slowly from the food), so you won’t feel hungry until lunchtime

1 can baked beans
1 can of 4 or 5 bean mix (rinsed in a sieve with water)
1 or 2 cans of crushed tomato
1 can of corn (rinsed)
1 can of peas (rinsed)
1 can of any other type of beans that take your fancy … kidney beans, butter beans, cannelloni beans, broad beans etc
Chilli sauce (100 ml or to taste)
Worcestershire sauce (50 ml or to taste)

Method: … it’s soooo easy!
•  Place all of the beans and peas into a casserole dish
•  Add chilli sauce and/or Worcestershire, or any other spicy sauce that takes your fancy, and stir through thoroughly.
•  Pop the casserole into a 160 degree oven for 1 – 2 hours  to blend the flavours and textures.
•  Stir every half hour and taste, adjusting the “hotness” as you go
•  Remove casserole from the oven and allow to cool
•  Serve a decadent ladleful, previously heated, on wholemeal toast for breakfast … or as a healthy snack any time.

  • Tried Gerald's Bean dish, casserol dish to point of overflowing. Had two pork cutlets, browned in pan with some garlic, placed in another casserol dish, added two ladles of bean mix and baked for about two hours. Served with steamed green beans. Pork tender and so tasty. Would work well in a slow cooker - next time.

  • Geralds receipe doesn't state what size of the cans I notice in a few of the recipes this doesn't happen and it makes the difference of tasting good or bad.
