Home-style Baked Beans.


I think home-made baked beans is just one of those things you have to try to belive  its worth it, and belive me its worth it, I have fond childhood memories of veggie sosmix patties smothered in baked beans with hash browns.

1 medium onion, diced
1 1/2 cup of vegetable stock
1 tbsp molasses
1 tbsp agave syrup
1 tbsp cider vinegar
1 tsp tamari
1 tsp liquid smoke (optional)
1/2 tsp garlic powder
2 cups passata
2 tins of haricot beans, drained and rinsed
Slow roasted cherry tomatoes (optional)
salt and pepper to taste

Fry the onion in pre-heated saucepan with a little oil untill the onion is softened, mix the agave, vinegar, molasses and tamari ,and liquid smoke if using, then whisk in the garlic powder with a fork and add the mix to the pan, followed by the passata stirring it in as you add, ensure the mix is not boiling, just simmering slightly, then add your beans. Cook gently for about 4 minutes, or until beans are cooked. Serve with slow roasted tomatoes/ grilled tomatoes stirred through for an extra tomato hit!

  1. I made these tonight. Delicious and hearty! I don’t know if we have passata around here (Virginia suburbs of DC) and I was pressed for time (but now I’m interested), so I used canned crushed tomatoes. I was confused by one thing: stock is in the ingredients but not the directions. 🙂
