Tender white beans in a thick, sweet and salty, smoky tomato-based sauce.

Servings: 2-4   Time: 1 ½ hours   Difficulty: Feelin’ Lazy

Recipe by: No Eggs or Ham

Ingredients

  • 2 cans of Great Northern beans, liquid drained
  • 6 ounces (1 can) tomato paste
  • 1 ½ cups vegetable broth
  • ½ onion, largely diced
  • 3 medium garlic cloves, roughly chopped
  • ⅓ cup brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 2 teaspoons vinegar (rice, apple cider, or distilled will work)
  • 1 ½ teaspoon liquid smoke
  • 1 teaspoon soy sauce or tamari
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • ½ teaspoon cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon maple extract (optional)
  • ¼ teaspoon mustard powder or ½ teaspoon yellow mustard

 

Directions

1. Heat a mid-sized pot over medium-high heat. Once hot, add in oil, onion, and a heavy pinch of salt. Cook until onions start to turn translucent then toss in garlic and cook for another minute.

2. Add in the rest of the ingredients and stir until mostly smooth. Place on a lid, reduce heat to medium-low, and simmer for 1 hour, stirring occasionally. If the liquid begins to reduce too much, stir in a splash of vegetable broth.

3. Taste and adjust seasonings as needed, adding more brown sugar for sweetness, soy sauce for depth, liquid smoke for smokiness, or salt for saltiness.

4. Enjoy alongside coleslaw, bbq jackfruit, corn bread, or anything else that's Southern! Store leftovers in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 4 days. Reheat in a pot over medium heat with a splash of water until hot.
