vegan egg McMuffins, Vicki's mini croissants, Craig's vegie sausages in batter, Bec's berry cornbread, AOF's soy balls, someone's scrambled tofu, Cindy's gingerbread waffles with fruit, and Craig's oreos in batter. I am sure I have missed lots else but it was really good.
I am sending this taco filling to Cooking with Siri for My Legume Love Affair (#62), the monthly event celebrating beans and lentils and legumes, overseen by Lisa of Lisa's Kitchen and founded by Susan of The Well Seasoned Cook.

Smoky Apple Baked Beans
Adapted from Fat Free Vegan
Serves 6 to 8 or more in a buffet
2-3 tsp olive oil
2 onions, finely chopped
1 large red capsicum, diced
8 garlic cloves, finely chopped
1 large apple, chopped
400g tin of cannelini beans, rinsed and drained
400g tin of lima beans, rinsed and drained
400g tin of borlotti beans, rinsed and drained
400g tin of diced tomatoes
2 tbsp tomato paste
1 to 2 tbsp golden syrup
1 tbsp cider vinegar
1 tbsp wholegrain mustard
1 tsp soy sauce
1 tsp sea salt
1 tsp lavender salt
1 tsp smoked paprika
1 tsp liquid smoke
1/2 tsp bush pepper blend (or freshly ground black pepper)
Fry onions for about 3 minutes in olive oil in a stockpot. (I used my 25cm le creuset dutch oven which is suitable for stovetop and oven.) Add red capsicum and fry an additional 3 minutes. The onions and red capsicum should be quite soft by now. Stir through garlic and apple for about a minute. Add remaining ingredients and bake at 180 C for about 30 minutes covered and another 30 minutes uncovered. Check seasoning and adjust to taste.
They were ready to serve hot out of the oven but I left them at room temperature overnight and then heated for another 30 minutes the next morning before taking them out. Keeps a few days in the fridge.
