Vegan Cowboy Beans is a bean focused meal that can be made in the slow cooker. It's hearty, filling, and sure to warm up the cold winter months -- and it's so easy too. Just add to the slow cooker or Crock Pot and wait. You can also make this dish in the instant pot.

Ingredients

  • 6 cups low sodium vegetable broth or water
  • 16 oz pinto beans dry
  • 15 oz tomatoes diced
  • 1 white onion medium, diced or sliced
  • 3 cloves garlic
  • 1/4 cup jalapenos diced, optionally deseeded
  • Optional toppings/seasonings
  • cilantro or flat leaf parsley chopped
  • vegan bacon optional
  • sea salt optional
  • wedges of limes optional, but strongly encouraged

Instructions

  1. * (This can be cooked in a pressure cooker also which will reduce cooking time)
  2. In a pan on the stovetop add the onions with a small amount of vegetable broth (or water) and cook until golden at medium heat.
  3. Add garlic and jalapeños to onion and cook until the garlic is browned and fragrant.
  4. Add the tomatoes to the onion mixture.
  5. Transfer the onion mixture to the slow cooker, and add the beans and 6 cups of water.
  6. Cook in a slow cooker for 4 hours at high. Alternatively, cook at 6 hours at low.
