It’s wonderfully filling, but super healthy and a nice twist on the baked beans we’re used to having. These smoky beans are easily one of my favourite savoury vegan recipes to make for breakfast.

How to make Smoky Baked Butter Beans
Not only is this is a super easy meal to make, but it’s super tasty and really healthy too!
Firstly, you’ll want to heat a splash of olive oil in a pan before adding your chopped onion. Whilst the onion is frying, stir continuously for 3-5 minutes until soft then add the crushed garlic, bay leaves and paprika into the pan and fry for another minute.
Next, drain your butter beans and pour them into the pan with everything else – and the chopped tomatoes. Allow the mixture to simmer for 15 minutes on low heat before adding the spinach and allowing it to wilt.
Next, simply add salt and pepper until you’re happy with the taste and enjoy! See, I told you it was easy 😉
