Vegan MoFo Day 7 - Vegan Cowboy Baked Beans

'Cos all good cowboys are vegan right?

Baked Beans
Serves 8
Ingredients
400g dried haricot or cannellini beans
3 Tbsp olive oil
2 red onions, finely chopped
2 garlic cloves, finely chopped
1 tsp salt
2 Tbsp dark muscovado sugar
3 Tbsp cider vinegar
480g can of plum tomatoes, smooshed up
150ml water

Method
Soak the beans overnight.
Drain and place in a pan, cover with fresh water and bring to the boil over a medium heat.
Cook for about 45 minutes-1 hour until tender.
Remove from heat and set aside for 30 minutes.
Drain well.
Heat the oil in a large saucepan, add the onions and cook for 6-8 minutes. Add the garlic and cook for another couple of mins then add the salt.
Stir in the sugar, vinegar, tomatoes, and water, then tip in the beans. Reduce the heat to low and cook for 1½-2 hours, stirring occasionally, until you have a thick sauce and tender beans.

Wearing of cowboy attire is entirely optional. 
These will be awesome on a jacket potato which is exactly how I intend to eat them tonight.
GO VEGAN!
Go MoFo!

I wish these were my breakfast right now! I've only made baked beans once using the V'Con recipe so now I have to try your recipe too!
