Easy Homemade Tomato Beans on Toast

This is my homemade version of baked beans. I'm not sure if it is very authentic, because there is no baking involved. I have always gotten a little grossed out by baked beans on toast, only because the only version I was exposed to was the canned version.

I have experimented with chia pudding a fair bit over the years and was never quite happy with all the different ways to make chia pudding. Chia pudding is usually eaten for breakfast but most recipes I have seen called for a plant milk base and quite frankly it is just not filling enough or flavourful enough.
