  • 1 yellow onion, chopped
  • 1 red bell pepper, chopped
  • 1 green bell pepper, chopped
  • 2 Tbsp garlic powder
  • 3/4 cup ketchup
  • 2/3 cup molasses
  • 1/2 cup maple syrup
  • 2 Tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 2 Tbsp vegan Worcestershire
  • 1 Tbsp low-sodium soy sauce
  • 2 tsp. liquid smoke
  • 1 Tbsp yellow mustard
  • Salt to taste (if necessary)

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. 
  2. Heat a large nonstick saucepan over medium heat and sauté chopped onions. Cook for 2-3 minutes or until the onions are soft. Toss in the chopped bell peppers, add the garlic powder and cook for about 1 minute.
  3. Pour in all the sauce ingredients (ketchup, molasses, maple syrup, apple cider vinegar, vegan Worcestershire, soy sauce, liquid smoke, and mustard) and stir until everything is well combined. Let the sauce simmer for about a minute to allow all the flavors to meld together.
  4. Drain and rinse the canned beans then add them to a 9×13 baking dish. Pour the sauce mixture over the beans and gently stir until all the beans are covered. 
  5. Wrap the baking dish with aluminum foil and bake for 1 hour. Remove the foil and bake for 30 more minutes.
