Breakfast beans? Well, you can do better than the preservative infused sugar & salt syrups.



Known as Maharangwe Ya Nazi in Tanzania and in many parts of East Africa. This superb and flavourful treat is an amazing alternative to baked beans.




Traditionally this protein-rich and fibre-packed dish is enjoyed as a main meal and often served with Chapati/ Parathas or rice. Unlike the very bland and sugary canned beans which often needs another form of protein to jazz them up, this coconut baked beans are full of flavours and are very versatile in its use. Falling within both the sweet and savoury spectrum of taste, this cinnamon & mild-curry powder infused creamy coconut treat is truly versatile, can be equally enjoyed in breakfast, lunch or in dinner. A great alternative for meat dependent side legume dishes
