My Vegan Baked Beans Recipe Notes
Baked Beans!!!! Baked beans are something I grew up with. I don't think my mums would have been vegan friendly, but my version of course is. These baked beans are sweet and smoky and I love them along side a loaf of my mums recipe for oatmeal brown bread. To give my baked beans their smoky flavour without using pork, I use three different ingredients. Liquid smoke, chipotle in adobo & smoked paprika. My logic is that it will give the final dish more complexity than if I just used one of the ingredients. This was an easy choice because I always have these things on hand. I use smoked paprika in many recipes on my blog. Chipotle in adobo I use in my black bean chili. Liquid smoke I use to make Coconut Bacon in my Caesar Salad.
As you can see in the image, also served them with some veggie sausage, and slow roasted tomatoes. I typically eat this meal for dinner, but I think you could definitely turn it into a big breakfast or brunch!
Recipe. Vegan Baked Beans with Chipotle & Maple
** I buy cans of La Costena chipotle in adobo sauce, puree the contents, and keep it in a jar in the fridge for adding to recipes. It keeps for months, and it's great in so many things. I use it in soups, dips, and sauces predominantly. Stir a bit into your vegan eggs (or eggs if you aren't vegan) before scrambling along with chopped green onion, cheese and tomato. Make a smoky salsa to dip chips into, stir it into sour cream....the possibilities are endless.
