Vegan Red Bean Sauce Recipe
The results are usually pretty satisfying.
It's a pretty simple way to get some elaborate results.
The classic sauces tend to be fraught with butter, cream and other animal products.
I just fiddle around with getting equally exciting sauces from plants.
This one is a keeper.
1 can red beans, rinsed
3 cloves garlic
2 serrano peppers, mostly deseeded
1 jalapeno, mostly deseeded
1/3 cup water
2 tsps soy sauce
2 tbls olive oil
1 tbl caraway seed
1 tbl salt
2 tsps black pepper
This is pretty easy to make. Use a small sauce pot to simmer all, but the red beans.
Bring up to a simmer and then let it go for 10 minutes.
Add beans to your food processor. A pitcher blender might work as well. Haven't tried it.
Pour hot simmered mixture over the beans.
Puree until smooth.
It's a quick and tasty little sauce. It's kind of a fusion of harissa and hummus.
If you want a thicker puree you can use less water. If so, you'll probably want less salt too.
