Vegetarian Franks and Beans and Greens

28 Sep Vegetarian Franks and Beans and Greens

My meatless monday creations usually are born from a combo of cravings and whatever the hell I have sitting in my fridge and pantry. This dish is a perfect example of those two coming together in a pretty perfect way, when all I wanted was beans and bbq and I just happened to have every single ingredient sitting around in my kitchen. Smoky, sweet, spicy, and hearty this one pot meal is fabulous to eat on its own or serve alongside a BBQ spread.

Total Time
20 min
Sauce Ingredients
  1. 1/2 yellow onion, diced (about 1 cup)
  2. 2 medium garlic cloves, peeled and chopped
  3. 1 large roma or medium beefsteak tomato, chopped with juices (about 1 cup)
  4. 1/4 cup brown sugar
  5. 3 tablespoons molasses
  6. 3 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
  7. 2 tablespoons vegan worcestershire sauce
  8. 2 tablespoons brewed strong coffee
  9. 2 tablespoons liquid smoke
  10. 1 tablespoon mustard powder
  11. 1 teaspoon onion powder
  12. 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  13. 1 teaspoon kosher sea salt
  14. 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper (optional)
Other Stuff
  1. 3 tablespoons grapeseed oil
  2. 1 bunch collard greens, mustard greens, or curly kale (or a mix!), stems removed
  3. 2 Field Roast Frankfurters, sliced into coins
  4. 2 cans pinto beans, drained and rinsed
  1. Heat oil in a heavy bottomed large skillet over medium high heat. Add onions and cook for about 5 minutes until softened and starting to turn golden Transfer onions to a high powered blender, leaving as much oil in the pan as you can. To the blender, add the remaining sauce ingredients and blend on high until completely smooth.
  2. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil and add greens. Cook for two minutes, then remove greens and squeeze out as much water as you can. Finely chop the greens.
  3. Bring the original skillet with remaining oil to medium high heat, add the franks and beans and cook for 3 minutes. Add in sauce, stir, and lower heat to low to simmer. Cook for 10 minutes, stir in greens, and serve!
  1. Feel free to omit the franks if you're not into processed food (Field Roast is pretty awesome in taste and ingredients though!), it will still be delicious!
