My recipes are grain free, refined sugar free and most are dairy free. Summertime is almost here. That means lots of picnics or bbq. I like beans. I have always like baked beans. There is just something about baked beans that make it a summer comfort food, Love these beans. You can use white beans or even use dry beans. If using dry Cannellini beans soak beans in water overnight. The next day drain the water from the beans add new water and cook in a pot on the stove. Cook for 30 minutes to an hour or until soft. When soft remove from water and follow the recipe below. I used French’s yellow mustard in this recipe. Goes great with BBQ Ribs on the Grill, dairy free coleslaw, and BBQ Sweet potatoes.
1 can 15.5 oz Cannellini or white beans
2 teaspoons maple syrup
1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
1/8 teaspoon onion powder
1/3 cup of water
1/4 cup coconut nectar
1/8 cup coconut sugar
1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
1 teaspoon yellow mustard
salt and pepper to taste
*1/8 teaspoon hickory liquid smoke
*Hickory liquid smoke is optional but a yummy addition.
Heat up coconut nectar, coconut sugar, maple syrup. Heat until thicker. Add all the remaining ingredients except for the beans. Stir until combined Add beans. Let simmer 45 minutes to 1 hour. Serve warm.
