Beanie Weanies (GF and V)
So it's a kid-friendly pot of Beanie Weanies and Mini Tator Tots for lunch today. My favorite way to eat them is over a hunk of corn bread, but I got out-voted today. I don't really follow a recipe so much as a list of ingredients, so these are approximate amounts. Taste it and adjust it to your liking. I would normally put everything in a casserole dish and then bake it slow (or crock pot it). I mix and match the beans, but this is what I had in the house today.
I hope this takes you back to your childhood!
1 large can vegetarian baked beans (I like Bush's)
1 can white beans (cannellinis, navy or butter beans)
1 can green beans and/or yellow wax beans
1/2 white or yellow onion, chopped
2 T. maple syrup
2 T. brown sugar
1-2 T. yellow mustard
(sometimes I add BBQ sauce, too, but my son doesn't like it so I left it out today)
Fresh ground black pepper
3-4 vegan hot dogs (I like Good Dogs, but Smart Dogs are good, too), chopped
Combine it all together in a large pan or soup pot. Cook on low for about 45 minutes, stirring to make sure sugars don't burn/stick on the bottom.
