Baked Beans on Bread

by Maryam on June 27, 2011

Isn’t it strange that I’m always doing the easiest and fastest recipes ever? However, it is cool when you know that you can prepare a satisfying meal within 15 minutes! I used to have the feeling that the more complex the recipe and the longer time it takes to be prepared the better the taste you would get! But, after many experiments done by myself regarding this issue, I discovered that this fact which I used to believe in was absolutely wrong!

Instead, I discovered  that the more you are able to imagine the taste of the ingredients you are mixing together, the more successful your dish would be! In general, it’s not a matter of how exact the measurement of the ingredients you are doing, except for baking a bread! it’s more about how you see your meal before  the serving step .. you can add ingredients or remove some as long as you know exactly how the final result would taste like!

Sometimes you need to give a strange recipe with high rating a try! Even though you know nothing about it .. when a lot of people agree on one recipe this is a good indication that you may discover something that would be really delicious ..  this exactly what happened with me when I first tried the carrot cake recipe! at that time I couldn’t imagine that this thing would make it .. however, since then I do bake it every weekend! .. as a hint,  always read the recipe  reviews! many of these recipes may not be as good as the ratings show! .. reviewers give you many information about their experience with this specific recipe, and they teach you how to make the best of it! therefore, whenever I want to try something new I start searching for the high rated recipes with many reviews as possible ..

Baked Beans on Bread

Well .. I can’t say this recipe was adapted from a specific site or cookbook, its mainly a collection of recipes in one .. I wanted to make something without meat, quick and easy, and still taste so good! luckily, I got what I wanted within 15 minutes .. it was easily modified to suite one person .. however, I will post it as a 4 servings recipe!

4 cans baked beans in tomato sauce, 200g each

1 medium sized onion, chopped

5 garlic cloves, crushed
