Quick & Dirty Baked Beans (TMX, GF)

last night i just couldn't be bothered cooking, it's been too hot and I'd had an awful day (everything that could go wrong had gone wrong). inspired by Caroline's baked beans, which i didn't have time to make, i decided to go with a quicker version which was a bit plain but nice enough for me to write down in case of other lazy nights...

this quantity serves around 2-3 as a main (with toast or baked potato etc)

1/2 small red onion, optional *
2 garlic cloves, peeled
5-10g olive oil
2 ripe roma tomatoes, quartered
1/2-1 tspn beef stock powder (i use massell)
1 tin drained rinsed cannellini beans **

chop the onion and garlic finely on speed 6 for around 2 seconds.
add oil and cook for 5 minutes at 90' speed 2 (you might not need as long if not using onion)
add tomato and stock powder and cook for 5 minutes at 90' speed 4
add beans and cook for 15 minutes at 80'c reverse speed 1 with measuring cup out of lid

* i used a full one and it was a bit strong tasting, i'm not sure if i needed to cook it longer or leave it out
** i think you could probably use 2 in this quantity

a dollop of tomato paste in with the beans would probably be good too
