The speedy stew: white beans in tomato sauce


In an ideal world – or rather fridge – I would have a get-ahead pan of both white beans and tomato sauce on the go at all times. With a couple of ladlefuls of both, warmed in a pan while the bread is toasted, a tasty supper would be on the table quicker than you can say “beans on toast”. I have only managed this ideal fridge once; the rest of the time I use tinned cannellini or butter beans with a portion of sauce. Sausages or couscous make it slightly more work, but not much.
