(Vegan) Franks 'n 3 Beans

Love Life and Lollipops- Vegan Franks 'n 3 Beans

These vegan franks and beans were filling and comforting and delicious. Last week we had a last minute visit from my friend Erika.  She came by after work and it was a beautiful day.  I convinced her to stay for dinner before I'd planned what I was going to cook, so had to conjure something good up.

I decided on an updated take on an old favorite: franks 'n beans.  It was easy and comfy and a one pot wonder.  I served it with some garlic bread and voila! Quicky dinner in a bowl.

Here's how I did it:

Ingredients:

1 yellow onion chopped

2 cloves of chopped garlic

1 can aduki beans

1 can pinto beans

1 can dark kidney beans

2 tablespoons olive oil

Salt to taste

1 carton of Imagine Creamy Tomato Soup

1 package of Smart Dogs cut into bite sized pieces

  1. In a large soup pot saute the onions in the olive oil with 1 teaspoon of salt.
  2. Once they are translucent add the garlic and dogs and cook until the dogs start to brown.
  3. Add the tomato soup and 1-2 cups of water depending on how soupy you like it (you can also add the water later in the cooking process).
  4. Add the beans and stir everything together.
  5. Bring to a boil then lower to a rolling simmer.
  6. Cook for 45min up to the time you're ready to eat.  The longer it cooks the more it'll thicken.
  7. Serve it hot in bowls with chunky garlic bread from peasant or country bread.
