Homemade Baked Beans
Serves 4 as a side
1 400g can Pinto beans (or whatever beans you prefer), rinsed and drained
1 sweet onion, sliced
2 cloves of garlic, chopped
1/2 cup water
1 cup ketchup
1/3 cup maple syrup
1/3 cup brown sugar
1 tbsp vegan Worcestershire sauce
1 tbsp mustard
A dash of hot sauce
To make the BBQ sauce, melt margarine in a saucepan over medium heat.
Saute onion and garlic for 15 mins, until onions have cooked down and are nicely browned.
Add the remaining ingredients and bring to bubbling.
Simmer for 15-20 mins, until sauce thickens and gets a nice deep red colour.
Add in the pinto beans and heat through, around 3-5 minutes.
Serve in a bowl, on toast or as a side with your favourite vegan brekkie!
