Check out my article in today's Cork Independent which gives you tips on how to select the right tinned foods:

Homemade baked beans

125 g of dried haricot beans or 1 tin of haricot beans
1 onion
1 clove of garlic
1 tin of chopped tomatoes
½ teaspoon cumin
¼ teaspoon cayenne
¼ teaspoon cinnamon
Pinch of salt and freshly cracked pepper

Boil a large pan of water and put in the dried haricot beans. Cover and turn off heat. Leave for 4-8 hours. Drain off water and cover with fresh water, bring to boil and simmer for 45 min- 1 hour. Or simply wash tinned haricot beans and drain well.
Meanwhile, add the tomato and all of the flavourings into a saucepan and simmer for 10 mins. Add the cooked beans and cook for a further 10 mins.
Serve on your favourite whole wheat toast with some grilled mushrooms.
