Sleepy Sunday - Bean Hash

Welcome to the third sleepy Sunday of the month! Boy, time flies when you're having fun.

So far, sleepy Sunday has brought you broad bean pate and stuffed mushrooms, but today were going to fry it up!

After a long walk with Marco this morning across the fields we were both starving when we got home and wet! It's absolutely chucking it down here today, I think summer is over. Neither of us had eaten any breakfast. I just wasn't hungry and Marco's excuse was that he was too excited to go out for a walk!

Once more I raided my cupboards for a tin of beans. I always have tins of beans at the ready, they are so versatile and you can easily make a meal out of a tin of beans! Even if it is baked beans on toast!


2Tbsp Olive oil
1 Large potato
½ Tsp Paprika
Pinch of chilli flakes
½ Onion, chopped
6 Mushrooms, quartered
290g Tin of Borlotti beans
1 Tsp White miso
Salt & Pepper

Dice the potatoes into 1cm cubes. Add 1 tablespoon of olive oil to a frying pan and heat before adding the potato cubes. Fry for 5 minutes stiring regularly, add the paprika and chilli flakes and stir to coat the potatoes. Fry for a further 5 minutes until the potatoes are starting to brown.

Add the chopped onion and fry for another 3 minutes. Next add the chopped mushrooms along with 1 tablespoon of soy sauce and fry for another 3 minutes.

Next add the beans and continue to fry for another 3 minutes before adding the white miso. Stir the miso through the bean and potato mixture making sure everything is coated and fry for another minute.

Add salt and pepper to taste and serve.

You can serve on its own or with a side order of baked beans for double beans.

Or mix the baked beans into the hash as I ended up eating it!


  1. Hi jasmine! I just found your blog while snooping around the MoFo list! Those beans, mushrooms and especially the potatoes look great. Best of luck to you as you transition to veganism....I am an 'almost vegan' and my 1 year anniversary is coming up! Do you Colleen Patrick-Goudreau's work? Her podcasts are excellent and will inspire you to forge into veganism!

  2. Hi Tracy, thanks for your comment. I haven't heard of Colleen Patrick-Goudreau, but I'll look into it. Thanks for the tip. Looking back I can't believe how easy it has been to transform from veggie to vegan, there is no going back for me! I love experimenting in my kitchen and have tried so many new foods :)

  3. This looks really good! Sounds like a great brunch!

  4. Ooooh super yummy weekend food! Where did you get white miso? I don't think I've ever seen it before...

    1. Hi Charmite, I buy mine from Waitrose. I opened some at the beginning of Mofo hence the number of recipes I'm using it in! :)

  5. Hi Jasmine, That looks so lovely and warming - just the thing on a raining, miserable day like we're having in Melbourne today.

    1. It's just the same here, damp, miserable i think our summer is finally over :(


Thanks for leaving a comment, Jasmine x
