Why I Love This Recipe

File this under "Things I like to eat that other people think are gross." I made these after going to England and developing a taste for beans in tomato sauce on toast. When I got back to the states, I wanted to find a way to make the dish myself, without having to buy Heinz canned beans or Batchelor's Beans. So, I just looked at the ingredients and made this up. There's no ketchup in it, but I think it tastes like there is.

These beans are also good with potatoes and eggs.

Ingredients You'll Need

4 cups of cooked white beans (I prefer navy beans)
About 2 cups of tomato juice (Must be only tomato - no V8)
2-3 TBs of brown sugar
1-2 TBs of red wine or balsamic vinegar
1 TBs of soy sauce
Dash of cayenne
Salt and Pepper to taste


Put all the ingrediants in a pot. Cook on low to medium heat until the beans are warmed through and the sauce begins to thicken. Eat.

Questions, Comments & Reviews

Love your comments about the recipe!! I will try your recipe too. I agree that there are times when the celery taste in V-8 just doesnt' cut it. :):)
