Make your baked beans more exciting

Here's a typical Sunday afternoon post-training lunch. So quick and easy whip up, healthy and really tasty. Those chilis you can see in there are our little homegrown ones and they certainly have a bit of punch!

Depending on what's in the kitchen, I will add any of the following, in any combination, to my baked beans:

- Garlic
- Onion
- Chili
- Broccoli
- Mushrooms
- Egg
- Spinach
- Cheese
- Corn
- Pumpkin chunks (precooked in the microwave)
- Capsicum
- Thyme or parsley
- Spices: cumin, coriander, paprika, fresh cracked pepper

I used the first six ingredients in the beans I made yesterday (those chilis are our own homegrown ones! Oh boy they have some punch), and served it with a thick slice of wholegrain toast. Delicious.
