Beans on Toast

This is so simple I could cry!!!!  I can't believe I've lived without this all this time,  just because I've always hated canned baked beans.

  • Buttered toast (thick white bread for the school holidays!!)
  • Can of Butter Beans - drained and rinsed
  • butter
  • garlic - crushed (I resorted to garlic powder and it was fine)
  • In small saucepan combine beans, knob of butter and garlic.  
  • On medium heat, stir gently until heated through
  • Serve on toast
Delish!!  Ms C and Mr JR ate it down very quickly and then I had to make another batch for Mr Frillypants and me.  So very yummy....  and so surprising as I DON'T LIKE BEANS!!!!!  Fabulous for lunch or a light dinner.


Last night I didn't have any Butter Beans,  so I used Borlotti Beans.  I also decided to add leek,  finely sliced diagonally and sauteed with the butter and garlic.  Then stirred the beans through.  Yummo!!!


  1. I love baked beans on toast and have really been missing them. Will definitely give this one a go. Have you thought of mashing it into a paste/dip?

  2. Niki, we use the bean dip recipe and hummus recipe from the Failsafe Recipe book all the time. I don't use it on toast though, just as a dip with bikkies or vegie sticks.

  3. My sister commented to me "everything tastes good cooked in butter and garlic". That is something I am going to take forward in my life from here on in. :D

Sandra's No-Tomato Sauce

I have been using this all over the place...  and a bit like the Deli Chicken,  it has helped save Failsafe cooking all over again.  People on the facebook Failsafe pages are talking about it,  it has been translated into Thermomix-ese on the "Something From Nothing" page and here's mine.

Oh,  but first,  here's --->  Sandra's original.

Ingredients :

1 tin Red Kidney Beans, drained and rinsed150g Pear, about 2 large halves1 teaspoon Citric Acid1/4 cup (50g) Brown Sugar1 teaspoon Salt2 medium Carrots*, peeled and roughly chopped 1 stick Celery, roughly chopped4 Spring onions roughly chopped3-4 cloves of garlic1/2 cup WaterMethod:
Add all ingredients, except water, to TMX and pulverise on Speed 8 for about 5-8 secondsAdd waterWith MC in, cook for 25minutes,  Speed 3,  100ºC Purée by gradually increasing to Speed 9 for about 15 seconds*Moderate Salicylates

Verdict:  When I first tasted this I thought....    >.<  ewwww!...  but then I remembered I'd just ta…

Real Deli Chicken

The internet community is amazing, isn't it?  I have been a part of special interest forums (infertility, breastfeeding, homebirth, parenting, Thermomix, Failsafe diet) and I love that there's always someone out there with the information you need.  This recipe is exactly that.  On the 'Beyond Failsafe - Biomedical Treatment for Food Intolerances' facebook group, one person asked for some 'chicken-y school lunch ideas'.  Along came Meredith H. with her very simple answer.  She soaks chicken in brine,  poaches it...  and as easy as that you have a very commercial-tasting 'Deli Chicken' with no cruddy ingredients what-so-ever.  Her kids call it 'white bacon'...  we played around with 'chacon', 'bicken'...  and the winner is Real Deli Chicken.

Yorkshire Pudding

Mr frillipants' mum gave me this recipe, which really is the easiest-peasiest thing ever.

I am in the habit of making this with most roasts now, whether it's red or white meats, and it tastes so yummy with the meat and roasted veggies.  The recipe that I have says cooking time is 40-50 minutes,  which is seriously wrong. No idea where they got that? What I normally do is, when I have taken the cooked meat out of the oven to rest, and the veggies are still cooking, I put my 12-hole muffin tray in to start heating up.  I've already put a tiny dribble of a failsafe oil into each cup.  After a few minutes, I take the hot muffin tray out and, working very quickly, I pour the batter into each cup to about 1/3 full.  This will fill all 12 cups, giving the frillipantii 2 each... because we're greedy-gubbinses when it comes to Yorkshire Puddingses.
