Vegan Pork And Beans

A very simple, easy vegan dish is the vegan version of pork and beans.

Here's how you make it:
Take a can of vegetarian beans. Red beans work well, but you can use whatever you like. Then take a vegan hot dog or two and cut the hot dogs up into chunks. Heat up the beans, add in the hot dogs, and voila! You're done! Eat it with rice or toast.

I decided to showcase here a slight variation of veggie pork and beans. I make this version often.

1 can of spicy navy beans
2 Italian flavored veggie sausages
1 cup of cooked macaroni noodles

Heat everything up in a pot on the stove for about five to ten minutes.

Another variation I like to make is the caserole version. Take the pork and bean mixture and pour it over crackers or toast in a caserole dish. Top with crackers or toast and bake for about 20 minutes at 400 degrees F. You can even add a bit of shredded vegan cheese on top if you like.

I think this is going to become a go-to meal for me; especially for lunches. I can make it ahead of time and take it in containers to work for lunch. I wouldn't have thought to add pasta. Thanks for the suggestion!
