Today we will be making the Confederate Bean Soup Recipe from Paula Deen's Southern Cooking Bible vegan. My thoughts, ingredients, measurements, and directions are available below.
Day 9 Recipe 9 Southern Queen of Vegan Cuisine:
We eat baked beans all the time in the south. Since moving back home with my parents, they have even made the switch from Pork and Beans to just plain Baked beans. A year ago, I think they would have considered that sacrilege.
Paula says that this recipe is for using up leftover baked beans. Which is scary to me, because I having seen southerners do some scary things to use up leftovers. Adding more cheese, half and half, bacon, deep frying, weird sandwiches; sometimes I wonder if it would be healthier just to dump it.
This recipe isn't too bad, except for the soy creamer, I just added vegetables and veggie sausage to a can of baked beans. Something we would do on a normal festive occasion around here without changing the name from Baked Beans to Confederate Bean Soup. Fancy name or not, I ate the whole pot.
Vegan Baked Beans Recipe
1/2 onion, chopped (I really like onion)
1/2 green bell pepper, chopped
1 veggie sausage link, diced
1 16 ounce can of baked beans
1 cup to 1 1/2 cup soy creamer.
Place a large pot over medium-high heat.
Add enough vegetable oil to cover the bottom.
Sauté the onions and green bell pepper until soft. Sauté sausage until browned and seared all around.
Dump in the can of beans and stir it together.
Allow the contents of the pan to get hot, then pour in soy creamer. The amount is up to you, but you want it to be saucy enough to be considered soup.
Serve with hot sauce and enjoy.
