After having my own retail shop for over 18 years a few weeks ago I ended up having to close. After a few weeks of being slightly lost I decided to start doing a market stall . The weather was so cold that all I wanted was a hot quick comforting meal. Everyone loves beans on toast so I decided to make my own using cannellini (navy beans) .
Heat a little oil and sauté some finely chopped onion until soft ( I used one large shallot then add one tablespoon of tomato purée,one cup of organic pasata,one tablespoon of tamari,a teaspoon of chipotle powder or smoked paprika,a sprinkle of dried thyme and a teaspoon of coconut palm sugar. Give this a stir then add a cup of drained and rinsed cannellini beans and a heaped teaspoon of sweet miso paste.
Heat until hot and spoon on to fresh toast. Add some fresh black pepper and maybe some grated melted vegan cheese if you like ( you could place this under the grill to melt )
Im now ready for a hot soak with a self care candle . I can really recommend these they are hand poured soy candles with natural essential oils. Also what I love is that 10% of every sale goes towards Don’t Just Stare a platform raising awareness for metal health through creativity in schools,colleges and universities. Each candle comes in a glass jar that you can send back for a refill service too!
After spending many stressful years dealing with a business that really was causing me lots of harm mentally I am realising self care is very important just a little time to be mindful can help you feel at peace in body and mind . www.selfcarecompany.com
