Quick + Easy Vegan Baked Beans - Sweet, Smoky + Delicious!
Sorry I've been MIA guys. I have been working on TONS of recipes at night while making sure we get all of the Ashley's Naturals orders out during the day!
I'll be posting a lot of recipes today.
The first being - Quick + Easy Vegan Baked Beans.
Sweet, Smoky, + Pig Free!
1 can Organic Pinto Beans
1/2 c Organic Ketchup
1/4 c Organic Rice Vinegar
3 tbs Liquid Aminos
1/2 tsp Liquid Smoke
(don't skip the liquid smoke. It gives it that smoky bacon flavor)
1/4 Organic Sweet Onion - diced
1/4 Organic Green Peppers - diced
pinch of organic Thyme
1/2 tsp Paprika (smoked)
dash of Nooch (Nutritional Yeast)
1/8th tsp Mustard
1 Tbs Organic EVOO
Sea Salt to taste
1/4 c Molasses
1 tsp minced Garlic
1/4 c Coconut Sugar
1/8 c Maple Syrup
Start by sautéing the onions, green peppers, and garlic in a small sauce pan.
I eyeball everything because I cook from the soul. But I standardize these recipes for you :-)
Add in all of the ingredients except the beans, coconut sugar + salt.
Bring the sauce to a simmer. Taste it and adjust seasoning to make it less sweet, or sweeter depending on how you like your beans. I like mine sweet + smoky!
Add in the beans.
Bring to a boil.
Reduce to a Simmer.
Add Coconut Sugar*
Cover and forget about them.
for about 15 minutes that is.
Turn them off.
Add salt to taste. I didn't need any thanks to the liquid aminos.
They should be thick, saucy, rich, smoky, sweet, and delicious.
If they get too thick, just thin with a little bit of water.
Thank me later.
Sop them up with some cornbread.
This was Justice's first time tasting baked beans, and he LOVES them.
He said "MOM!! I smell something sweet and tasty!"
Now he's eating a ramekin full. Great job mom. Justice approved!
Love you all!
Will be back later today with a Vegan Rice Krispy Recipe, Vegan Spaghetti, Sliders + Vegan Strawberry Shortcake.
