These Vegan Boston Baked Beans are perfect minus the pork. Molasses, sage, and barbecue sauce add a deep, rich, smoky flavor. Serve this Fourth of July with a veggie burger or dog and potato salad. A vegan, gluten-free, soy-free and nut-free recipe.
For me, the smell and taste of baked beans takes me back to my childhood. The aroma instantly transports me back to summers of my youth; picnics in the park with family and friends. Several families, about 20 of us in all, got to a State Park for a picnic. We'd play baseball or basketball, then sit down to lunch. Hot dogs, hamburgers, potato salad, cole slaw, macaroni salad, and baked beans. Really nice memories.
Today, I usually eat my black beans straight from the can as Jane is not crazy about the smell -- there are several vegetarian baked bean varieties in stores. I likely wouldn't be able to make these myself (due to the smell) or get her to make them for me, same reason. Regardless, they sure look tasty, don't they?
