1 Place soaked beans in a pan with enough cold water to cover beans by 2.5cm. Add sage and garlic. Cover pan and bring to the boil. Reduce heat and simmer for 1 1/2 hours, or until beans are soft but still holding their shape.
2 Meanwhile, heat 1 tablespoon of the oil in a non-stick pan. Add onion and cook until softened. Add tomatoes, paste, herbs, stock and 1/4 cup water. Cook for 10—15 minutes to make a thick tomato sauce. Set to one side until beans are cooked.
3 Once beans are cooked, drain. Return to pan with tomato sauce. Stir in remaining oil, sugar, vinegar, chilli paste, oregano, cayenne, capsicum and chipotle sauce. Heat, stirring occasionally, for 10-15 minutes. Stir in coriander.
4 Serve on grainy toast topped with sour cream or yoghurt. Garnish with coriander.
Try beans on top of baked potatoes instead of toast.
