I am all for easy recipes, as you will no doubt soon find out! If it takes more than 45 minutes to get on the table I tend to turn my nose up at the recipe. There are a few exceptions obviously like special occasions and dinner parties. This is when you get to really show off your culinary skills but, on a normal everyday meal, it’s ease that I am looking for.
Obviously I want something tasty too and this recipe ticks both boxes.
These smoky beans are like pumped up baked beans and take about just as long to make as it does to open a can of Heinz!

flat-leaf parsley a handful, chopped
A large pinch of sugar
A pinch of sea salt
