Vegan Red Bean Sauce Recipe

The quest for good sauces compels me. I love to mess around with combining and pureeing beans with various flavor enhancers. 

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. 

Sauce Ingredients
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.
