The recipe for these Vegan Baked Beans comes from my cousin Allen in Missouri.  His wife made these for their daughter, Allison, who is vegan.  The best advice I can give you about making these easy baked beans is to double the batch.  They are completely addicting.  You don’t have to add chopped tomatoes and green onions to your baked beans.  That was my addition to this recipe.  I just happen to absolutely love tomatoes and green onions on mine.  I was at a restaurant years ago that served their barbecue baked beans this way – and I’ve added tomatoes and green onions to mine ever since.

WHAT BEANS ARE BAKED BEANS
