Smoky Baked Beans

It’s time for some awesome homemade smoky baked beans! We love these baked beans as part of a vegan breakfast, or as the perfect side dish at a plant-based BBQ!




  1. Add olive oil and onion to a large sauce pan, and sauté until onions soften. Next add the garlic and smoked paprika, stir and sauté for a further  1-2 minutes.
  2. Into the sauce pan, pour in drained beans, stir to combine. Then add the ketchup, black strap molasses, brown sugar, soy sauce, mustard and pepper, stir and cook for 1-2 minutes.
  3. Pour in the vegetable broth and bring to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer for 20 minutes or until the mixture has reduced and a thick sauce is achieved. You want the beans to have a thick smoky sauce, but not too soupy.
  4. Divide your smoky baked beans into six servings. Serve warm.


Serve your smoky baked beans with toast, as part of a delicious cooked breakfast alongside scrambled tofu or as a side dish at a plant-based BBQ! Enjoy!
