BBQ Dinner Recipe Sides Vegan

Baked Beans n’ Greens

I love baked beans. I used to love having them with hot dogs over the summer at barbecues and stuff, but there are so many ways to enjoy them vegan style; like with some sauteed greens or vegan mac n’ cheese.

I used some super yummy Maple & Onion baked beans by a company called Field Day, and while I didn’t find a vegan certified label on the can (even though the ingredients seem to be 100% vegan), I was super excited to see a label for BPA-free can lining.

So potentially when I made this, it wasn’t 100% vegan, but, you can totally find your favorite vegan baked beans to use, or find a recipe and make your own batch; the one below by Minimilist Baker has my attention :p

1-Pot BBQ Baked Beans

Baked Beans n' Greens

I had a lot of spinach that needed to get used up, so I sauteed it with a can of baked beans, and the result was delicious; with a little added flavor, it was even more delicious.

Feel free to get creative with your favorite flavors and seasonings, I just used what I’ve been liking lately; like this NOLA Red Cajun Seasoning by Seasonality Spices.
