I got this recipe out of the July 2006 issue of Bon Appetit. I haven't made this yet but it looked so easy to do...basically just dump some cans of beans into a pot and add a few more ingredients. We love bean dishes as a side when we grill out and I thought this looked like a great one.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Place all ingredients in a heavy large pot.
  2. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat, stirring until sugar dissolves.
  3. Reduce heat to medium and simmer uncovered until juices are thick, stirring gently and frequently to prevent burning, about 20 minutes.
  4. Season with salt and pepper.

Sassy little things, aren't they! Just enough bite, tempered with a little sweetness, to satisfy any bean lover. I'll be indroducing these to my boys at our next BBQ. Bev Tag, thank you for this quick dish.

I had no savory, so omitted that, and I used crisp bacon instead of turned out wonderful, and I thought I didn't like curry dishes!
