Twice cooked beans with spicy tomato sauce

A tasty way to prepare beans is Karen Martini's recipe for twice cooked beans with spicy tomato sauce. Karen's recipe can be found in her latest book, Where the Heart Is.

The beans are fried in oil and then put aside to drain. In the same pan, you then make a tasty sauce of tomato passata, onion, chilli, garlic, bay leaf, red wine vinegar and sugar. The beans are then added to the sauce, and finally, basil is added (I used basil from a squeezy tube rather than fresh, hence it can't be seen in the photo).

This is such a delicious way to serve beans, and I served this dish as a side with my roast chicken to spice things up a bit. I highly recommend it!
