Trish’s Cannellini Baked Beans

image00

This is a super-affordable and very satisfying dish that my friend Trish made for lunch today. She is instructing my girls about knitting while I am catching up on some work – a little blogging. Knitting would have been fun, but maybe next time…

Sauté 2 large, sliced onions till very soft and yum. Add a teaspoon of cumin and stir in a can of chopped tomatoes. Simmer this for 10 minutes or so. Then add a can of cannellini beans – and when heated through, tip into a casserole dish and top with grated cheese. Bake till bubbly, at about 160°C (325°F).

We ate this with bread and a salad of leafy greens and feta.

Oniony goodness!

It would be possible to substitute the beans for pasta, or cooked or cubed potatoes. Or you could spoon this beany dish over a baked potato, and that would leave everyone full and contented.

Speaking of baked potatoes, why not try this Take 5 recipe too?

The Messara Report on New Zealand Horse Racing

: My mum’s family loves a “flutter”.   A “flutter” is Kiwi slang for betting. Usually on horse racing, but we’re also partial to the odd greyhound meet or two. In April 2018, the Minister for Racing, Winston Peters, released the Messara report, calling for the clos
