Vegan Refried Beans

Vegan Refried Beans PinAmelia’s Oil-Free Vegan Refried Beans are so good you won’t be able to stop eating them! They require very little effort to prepare and they’re amazingly delicious.

And did I mention they’re oil-free? That means no empty calories from oil, which is commonly added to canned refried beans.

This recipe calls for canned pinto beans, but it’s also delicious with black or canary beans.

If you’re using Dried Beans, soak them for at least 4 hours, then rinse and drain. Cook over low heat for about 2 hours in enough water to cover the beans. You want the beans to be soft. We usually do this the day before we want to make the refried beans so they’re good to go. You don’t need to rinse and drain your cooked beans…you can use the liquid from cooking previously for your refried beans.

Vegan Chili

Soy Free Vegan ChiliA hot bowl of vegan chili on a cold day is the best way to warm your bones. This vegan chili is a traditional tomato chili with “meat” and beans. The taste and texture of the Beyond Meat Beefy Crumbles is just like ground beef, so you won’t be able to tell any difference.

We used fire-roasted chopped tomatoes for a little extra flavor in our vegan chili. However, you can use regular chopped tomatoes or you can even cut up some fresh tomatoes.

If you’re in a hurry, you can buy a chili seasoning packet, but making your own chili tastes so much better.

It’s a challenge finding vegan crackers, but if you can locate some, they’ll go well crumbled up in the bowl.
