Once done add your carrots and continue to cook for a further 10 minutes or until your carrots are properly cooked, stir continuously.

Prepare your tomatoes

 Using a small knife, carefully cut a small “X” into the bottom of each tomato.


In a small pot add your water and bring to boil, once boiling drop your tomatoes in and let them boil for about 30 seconds, or when the skins start to peel back, remove them with a spoon and let it cool.


When they’ve cooled for about a minute peel back the skin starting from the “X.” After peeling chop your tomatoes up finely.

Add your chopped tomatoes and beans to your saucepan and cook furthermore. Simmer for 15 minutes until your beans are cooked properly. Add salt to taste.


Serve and enjoy!
