Super E-Z Franks and Beans

What you need: 

2 cans of any bean, I like pinto or great northern
1 pack tofu/veggie hot dogs (6-8 dogs)
1/4 cup maple syrup or 4 tablespoon brown sugar
1 tablespoon salt
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1+ tablespoon oil (for pot)

What you do: 

Slice tofu dogs to bite size, brown lightly in oil over medium heat before adding beans (remove most of the water first). Stir in remaining sweets and spices and cover to cook about 5 min. You may also add sliced carrots, mushrooms, onion, or even potato - but then that wouldn't be super e-z would it?
Please use more/less salt or sweetness to your taste, enjoy!

I made this recipe almost exactly, except I added about a 1/4 c of ketchup.  Wow, it tasted just like Bush's baked beans!  Secret family recipe my butt, they use ketchup, LOL!!!!  I bet that tomatos and vineger tastes good in there too.  I will have to try it next time.


I used

1 can Trader Joe's Diced and Fire Roasted Tomatos
2 cans Pinto beans
1-2 tsp maple syrup
2 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp of salt
2 tsp of rice vinegar

and then I ate it atop left over couscous.

It was delicious! My mom loved it.  ;)b


This is a recipe I lived on when I was younger and living in London. We used to add way less sweetener and add a small can of crushed tomatoes, and some vinegar. Delish!


Tried this with navy beans, potates, carrots and scallions.  I used agave nectar instead of maple syrup and added lots of pepper. Terrific!  ;D
