For the baked beans, heat the coconut oil in a non-stick frying pan and sauté the onion and garlic until fragrant and browned. Add the beans, spices, coconut sugar, vegetable stock, tomato purée and canned tomatoes. Simmer for 5-6 minutes over a medium heat. Stir in the coconut cream, remove from the heat and season.

Step 4. 

Serve the beans and potato hash with sautéed greens and mushrooms sprinkled with sesame seeds, if using, and topped with a dollop of hummus.
