Vegan Baked Beans is an easy stovetop beans recipe that is packed with flavor and the perfect BBQ side dish for summer gatherings.
Why This Vegan Baked Beans Recipe is So Good
- They technically aren't baked in the oven, so this baked bean recipe is extra perfect for hot summer days! Instead of baking, they're cooked on the stove.
- Tons of flavor goes into this recipe! Tomatoes, onions, lots of garlic, brown sugar, and spices make these beans extra tasty, without any bacon or meat needed.
- Vegan Baked Beans are a crowd-pleasing dish to bring to BBQs and potlucks. Double the recipe if you have a lot of friends to feed!
Tips and Tricks for Making Vegan Baked Beans
- I like to make this recipe with cannellini beans, but you can use any kind of beans you like! Chili beans, kidney beans, butter beans or even black beans will work.
- Use two different kinds of beans if that's what you have on hand. This is a great recipe for using up pantry staples.
- Transfer the beans to a casserole dish after they've simmered for the full "baked beans" experience. They'll also travel better that way.
