I’ve loved English baked beans for years – they’ve been a favorite to enjoy for breakfast or brunch! I first remember having traditional English Heinz beans when I lived in California, and absolutely loved them!  English beans are much less sweet than American BBQ beans (which are loaded with corn syrup and sodium) and are the perfect addition to breakfast. These British tomato beans are unbelievable simple to make at home, and are loaded with healthy vegetables, spices, and are ready in about 30 minutes!

These Vegan British Baked Beans Are:

  • Bright
  • Fresh
  • Flavorful
  • Loaded with Good-for-You Ingredients
  • Sweet, but not to Sweet
  • A little Salty, but not overpowering
  • Vegan, Vegetarian, Gluten Free, Dairy Free… the works!

One Pot Bean Recipes For the Win!

This copycat Heinz Beans recipe is the perfect one-pot lunch or dinner!  I love a good One Pot Meal, especially during these summer months when I don’t want a lot of burners going at once. Cooking everything in one pot is one of my favorite ways to get a meal on the table fast!  And one pot makes cleaning up a breeze. The stove does all the work for you, so you can focus on other kitchen prep while the food cooks.

How Do I Make These English Tomato Beans Recipe Vegan?

  1. In a Dutch oven, add the olive oil, carrots, garlic, and onion. Saute for 4 to 5 minutes until the veggies begin to soften. Add the tomatoes, ketchup, agave syrup, apple cider vinegar, salt, and vegetable stock.  Bring to a coil, then reduce heat to a low simmer and cook for about 15 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  2. Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. With an immersion blender puree the vegetable and tomato mixture until it becomes a thick and creamy sauce. If you don’t have an immersion blender, use a regular blender and puree in small batches.
  3. Add the beans into the dutch oven with the sauce, and bake for 20 minutes uncovered.  Enjoy!

Notes

I only used low or no sodium products when I wrote this recipe - that being said, if you use beans, tomatoes, or vegetable stock that is high in sodium, you probably want to skip the salt.  The sodium in canned and processed products can add up, so make sure to taste the beans before adding any additional salt.
