Without this special theme for VeganMoFo, I doubt I ever would have given this recipe a second glance. But, boy, did we both love it! Yet another hit from World Vegetarian. This recipe does take a while... you gotta soak and cook the beans, then they bake for 2 hours (though I cheated and we had our first serving after about one hour and 15 minutes, and they were great!). But even if you do go the whole long-term route with this recipe, you won't be disappointed. Plus, they're just sitting there in the oven the whole time, so you can be catching up on reading blogs for mofo, or practicing your headstand, or whatever you're into.
These amazing baked beans have got tomatoes, onions, curry, peanut butter... so many lovely flavors that all add up to an unexpectedly harmonious result. I thought they might be crazy rich, but instead they were only perfectly rich... and I was quite sorry when the leftovers were gone the next day. I'll definitely plan on making these yummies again and again. Deeelish!
