Emily's Traveling Beans

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by Journey 88

Since becoming a vegetarian, my daughter Emily has been very careful about checking out bean dishes for meat seasonings. Since beans are an important part of her diet, she developed this recipe to also accommodate her aversion to onions. Whenever a potluck is planned, it is expected that she will bring her beans, hence the name.

These are tasty and easy! Followed the recipe exact, using dark brown sugar and cooking the beans in the crockpot for 5 hours. Nice and thick, the way I like them :) Thanks for sharing!
