  • Step 1

    Heat a little olive oil in a frying pan over medium heat and add in the tomatoes and garlic. Sauté these until the tomatoes until they start to burst, then pour in the tinned tomatoes, puree and seasonings

  • Step 2

    Reduce the heat to low/low-medium and leave this to cook and reduce slightly

  • Step 3

    Once your sauce has thickened, allow this to cool, then pour the mixture into your Ninja blender and blitz for a few seconds so that you’re left with a smooth (ish) consistency. You can blend this as much or little as you like

  • Step 4

    Stir through the butterbeans and adjust any seasonings to taste. Heat until piping hot, then serve with some fresh toast!
