Southern Comfort Espresso Baked Beans


I hope everyone had a blessed and wonderful Thanksgiving, filled with love, laughter, and a ton of delicious food.

We sure did.

I posted a series of photos of our vegan meal on Facebook, and had many requests for several of my recipes -- most of which were already here, on SexyVeganMama.com.

Then, I got a few messages and a phone call, asking for my baked beans recipe.

Now, growing up, we didn't eat a lot of baked beans, that I can recall. Maybe a few times at picnics and barbecues, I might have had a bite or two of some humdrum baked beans, but nothing that really stood out. Most of these beans were pretty bland, and had bacon or ham in them.

As I understand it, baked beans also come in a can? Who knew?


But, once I became an adult and started cooking for my own family, I went on a quest to create flavorful vegan versions of standard picnic, potluck, and large family gathering meal staples.

Included in that list was baked beans.

To be honest, I didn't know beans about baked beans, so I went to some old-school sources -- like vintage cookbooks and family recipes which have been passed down for generations -- for inspiration, and used what I found as a jumping-off point for my own recipe, which you'll find, below.


Now, y'all know how Mama loves her Southern Comfort, and this recipe features that rich, decadent liquid gold as an ingredient.

And, of course, I can't function without my espresso, so I threw some of that in there, too.

Toss your sad cans of baked beans, because these homemade beans can't be beat!


Southern Comfort Espresso Baked Beans

1 lb dried pinto beans
6 c water

2/3 c cane juice crystals or natural sugar
1/4 c water
1 T apple cider vinegar
1 t ground black pepper

1/2 t ground cloves
1/2 t celery seed

1 - 12 oz can tomato paste

1/2 c brewed espresso or strong black coffee
1/4 c Southern Comfort

1 onion, thinly sliced

In a large saucepan, heat dried beans and water until boiling. Boil for 5 minutes, cover, remove from heat, and let the beans soak for one hour.

Add more water to cover beans, if necessary, and bring back to a rigorous boil. Reduce heat, cover, and simmer on low heat about one hour to an hour and a half, or until beans are tender.

Drain off bean liquid and reserve.

In a small saucepan, combine sugar, 1/4 cup water, vinegar, and spices. Bring to a boil, stirring occasionally, and boil until sugar is dissolved.

Add tomato paste, and combine thoroughly.

Remove from heat and stir in espresso and Southern Comfort.

In a 9" x 13" casserole dish, spread half the drained beans, and cover with half the Southern Comfort mixture and half the reserved bean liquid. Layer half the onion over the top, and spread the rest of the beans over that. Layer the rest of the onion.

Pour the remaining Southern Comfort mixture and bean liquid over the top. Cover tightly with foil and bake for one hour at 350 degrees F.

Uncover, stir beans, and bake an additional 45 minutes.

Enjoy!

Korean Chickpeas & Lentils

Let me tell y'all... I had a hell of a day, a couple days ago.

First, the bathroom sink backed up to high heaven, and after hours of plunging, pleading, and crying, it still wouldn't drain. I had blisters on my hands, funky water from head to toe, and nothing was working.

In desperation, I locked the bathroom door, and began to pretend that room didn't even exist.

We can pee and shower in the laundry room. No problem.

Then, I had an Individualized Education Plan (IEP) meeting at the school for one of our foster kiddos. Things have been particularly tense between the special education staff and me, since I wrote a blog post about objectionable language used by the school psychologist over on TheGonzoMama.com, and the post accidentally went sort of viral. Whoops.

So, there was a lot of anxiety leading up to the meeting, on my part, and I didn't expect it to be pleasant. To top things off, Mr. Wright had got himself lost while out taking photos of some homes, and was late getting to the appointment, so I had to begin without him.

As it turns out, the meeting went pretty smoothly, but I was a hot firetrucking mess by the time I got there to start the meeting, alone.

And when we got home, the sink... well, it was still backed up, and I begged Mr. Wright to just deal with it, because I was in. no. mood.

Then, I headed into the kitchen to prepare some serious comfort food. I wanted sweet. I wanted spicy. I wanted warm. I wanted filling.

I wanted it all, and I didn't want to have to wait too long for it.

I used some basic Korean sauce recipes as a basic jumping-off point, and came up with the recipe below.

By the time it was done, all was well in the world. The issue with the sink was caused by a small toy being forced through the drain, and effectively blocking it. Life with kids... gotta love it.



Korean Chickpeas & Lentils

1 t. sesame oil
1 small onion, diced

4 c. water
1/4 c. liquid aminos
1/4 c. plus 2 T. agave nectar
2 t. sesame oil
2 t. ground ginger
3 large cloves garlic, minced
1/4 t. cayenne pepper
2 c. dried lentils

1 - 15 oz. can chickpeas (garbanzo beans), drained

Brown rice to serve over

Green onions and white sesame seeds for garnish.



In a large saucepan, heat one teaspoon sesame oil over medium heat.

Add diced onion, and saute until soft, tender, and beginning to brown slightly.

Add water, liquid aminos, agave nectar, sesame oil, ginger, garlic, cayenne, and lentils.

Increase heat and bring to a rolling boil.

Cover pan tightly, reduce heat, and simmer for 20 to 25 minutes, or until most of liquid is absorbed.

Stir in chickpeas, and heat thoroughly.

Serve over brown rice, and garnish with chopped green onions and sesame seeds.

Pumpkin Pecan Energy Bites


I have this friend. Well, okay, he was Mr. Wright's friend, first, since they went to school together, but I'm claiming him as my veryownpersonal friend, because we share something Mr. Wright does not:

Craig and I both eat an entirely plant-based diet.

So, who is this guy, anyway? Well, for starters, he's the creative brain behind Craig Olsen Interior Design, but he's also a fantastic actor, and he's working on an explosive documentary about one of Hollywood's best-kept secrets.

Beyond that, he's a fabulous human being, and a joy to know and be around. And he loves friends! You can connect with him on his Instagram page.

Anyway, so Craig posted photos of these really yummy-looking pumpkin energy bites on his Facebook page, and I just had to have the recipe. I offered to barter my Pumpkin Spice Mini Cupcakes with Maple Cinnamon Cream Cheese Frosting recipe, and my Pumpkin Pecan Pie recipe in exchange.

He sent the recipe, and it wasn't long before I was in the grocery store, messaging him, Is it weird if I want to put dried cranberries in it?

No, he said. He'd thought about adding cranberries, too.


I made a first batch, and found it was too "spiced" for my kiddos, so I cut the amount of spice. (Craig's original recipe called for pumpkin pie spice, but I make my own blend, and adjusted accordingly.)

Then, I reflected on that Pumpkin Pecan Pie recipe, and thought... These would be fantastic with pecans! So, pecans got added to the mix.

The end result is fantastic, and it's yet another lesson in how we can use recipes as a jumping-off point for our own creativity.

These energy bites boast not only 2 grams of protein each, but are also high in vitamin A!

Here's my final version of the recipe, inspired by the inimitable Craig Olsen:

Pumpkin Pecan Energy Bites

1 - 15oz can pure pumpkin
1/2 t. allspice
1/2 t. ginger
1/2 t. nutmeg
1/2 t. ground cloves
1 t. cinnamon
1/2 c. unsweetened applesauce
1/2 c. raw pepitas (shelled pumpkin seeds)
1/2 c. dried cranberries
1/2 c. vegan vanilla protein powder (I use Arbonne Vanilla Protein Shake mix)
1 1/2 c. rolled oats
1/3 c. vegan chocolate chips
1/3 c. chopped pecans


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

In a large mixing bowl, combine ingredients and mix thoroughly.

Drop small balls of dough -- 1 to 1 1/2 teaspoon -- on a parchment-lined cookie sheet.

(These bites won't bake "out," so you don't need to leave much space between them.)

Bake for 30 minutes.

Makes about 48 energy bite cookies.

Gluten-Free Pizza Crust & Cashew "Cheese" Sauce

Pizza... pizza... it's like its own food group, right? And when your house is home to a bundle of kids, there's no escaping it. However, I'm always on a quest to make it healthier, more nutritious, and less processed.

Until recently, we've used Daiya Deliciously Dairy-Free "cheese" shreds for our pizzas, and I stand by them. They're awesome!

However, I've been trying to create more from-scratch ingredients, and cut down on processed foods for the kids. Daiya shreds are great time-savers, but this cashew "cheese" sauce recipe contains more protein, more iron, more fiber, and far less sodium.

Bonus: It's totally less expensive!

And... let's talk about gluten. For those of us who aren't diagnosed with celiac disease, gluten intolerance, or another gluten allergy or sensitivity... we may not see a need to eliminate or reduce our gluten intake, but for some of us with autoimmune disorders, it may be worth taking a look at.

In our house, we have family members with Rheumatoid Arthritis and Alopecia Areata -- both autoimmune disorders.

Several prominent doctors have written about the relationships between gluten and inflammation, and between inflammation and autoimmune disorders. Could it be possible that eliminating gluten could give relief to those of us suffering from autoimmune disorders? Maybe. There's still a lot of research to be done, but anecdotal evidence certainly seems to point to relief coming from a gluten-free diet.

While the doctors and scientists figure it out, let me just say it might be worth it to do a trial run for six or twelve weeks. What do we have to lose?

Anyway, that brings me to the pizza crust... I really struggle with bread-like gluten-free recipes, because I don't yet understand the chemistry of gluten-free flours, and so many recipes call for eggs to bind it all together, so I'd pretty much given up on ever finding a gluten-free pizza crust recipe my family would love.

But then, a friend of mine on Facebook talked about a "two-ingredient pizza crust" that was made with just quinoa and water. That's it. Two things. And, she said, it was delicious, chewy, and fantastic!

Well, you know me... I can rarely leave a recipe alone, so I enhanced it a bit, but the resulting crust was amaaaaaaazing!


Ready to make your own? Here we go!


Gluten-Free Pizza Crust

1 c. uncooked quinoa
1 c. water

Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.

Put all ingredients into a blender, and blend, pausing occasionally to scrape sides of container. Continue until a thick, spreadable paste is created.

Cover a baking sheet or pizza pan with parchment paper, and spread crust mixture over paper. Crust should be about 1/4" thick.

Bake for 12 minutes, then flip over, and bake for an additional five minutes.

Remove from oven and set aside for assembly.


Cashew "Cheese" Sauce

1 1/2 c. raw cashews, soaked for one hour
1/3 c. HOT water

Drain cashews, and put in blender with all remaining ingredients. Blend well, pausing occasionally to scrape sides of container. Continue until a thick sauce forms.

If a thinner sauce is desired, add more water until desired consistency is achieved.

This sauce is great over pasta, or served as a dip or fondue. Simply adjust the consistency to serve your needs.

You can also add in the following, to provide different flavors:

Here's how we assemble our pizza:

  • Spread cashew "cheese" sauce over the baked crust.
  • Spread pizza sauce over that. (Optional. My friend doesn't use pizza sauce at all; just the cashew sauce!)
  • Pile veggies/toppings on top.
  • Thin out some of the cashew sauce, then drizzle it over the top.
  • Bake at 425 degrees F for 15 minutes.
  • Enjoy!

A Dirty, Dirty Dozen Years

TWELVE years ago, Mr. Wright, our (then) five kids, the cousin living in our garage and I made a little trip out to Bullet Bob's Freedom Compound, and got hitched. 


No one thought it was a good idea, including our respective families, friends, and perhaps ourselves. In fact, Mr. Wright didn't even tell his family he planned on marrying me until we were on our way. 


I think the conversation went something like this:

"We'll be a bit late arriving at the family condo this week, because I'm getting married today." 


It may have seemed like a safe time to break the news, because anyone who might speak up during that "if anyone objects to this union" part was already three hours away. 


His cousins started a betting pool in how long it would last. No one put in for more than six months to year, but we're stubborn. 


So, we said our vows in a field of daisies, joining all our kids into one family. When we did finally arrive at the condo, everyone was asleep and the beds were full. 


We spent our wedding night in the back of our Suburban. 


I loved you that day, Greg, and I love you today. I've even loved you most of the days in between, even when I'm not capable of loving myself. We've gained three more kids, and a lot more chaos, but I wouldn't change a thing. 


Happy anniversary!

Today's post is by Heather Smith-Mateo, a 1993 graduate of Manson High School, located on the shores of Lake Chelan. She currently works as a graphic designer in San Francisco, California.

I sat down to write this several times. I kept having trouble finding the words, not because I don’t know what it means to me but because it means so much. I could tell you about my first kiss, my first love, my first heartbreak, my first everything, really.

I could mention riding in the parade when I was a little girl, thrilled to wave at the crowd from the float, that same thrilled feeling when I was honored to ride in a float as Manson Apple Blossom Princess in 1993, and the wave of nostalgia I had when I rode on the back of a convertible with Heather Jeffries Coe and Amy Griffith Allan at the ten year anniversary of our time as princesses and queen.

I could describe best friends, my parents, cousins, proms and homecomings and my first car (a totally 80’s Datsun 310 tricked out in black with hot pink stripes), playing on the softball team and yelling “Good Eye, Good Eye, Good Eye, Good Eye, Good Eye” when someone didn’t swing at a ball, learning ballet and how to swim from Pat Beratta and just a million other things but what they all come down to is: Home.

Manson is home. Chelan is home.

I’ve lived in Moscow, ID for three years, went to college in Pullman, Washington for four years and lived in San Francisco, CA for the last 15 but no other place resonates in my heart the way Lake Chelan does. I feel like I’m my most authentic self there. I’m more relaxed and more completely in my skin.

Every time my dad considers selling the Cabana (his home on the lake) I have a complete meltdown. I want the best for him but most of what I envision for my long awaited future child revolves around teaching them to swim off the same deck, taking them to opening day of Lakeview Drive-in, showing them where I grew up and went to both grade school and high school, introducing them to local friends and family, watching the fireworks over the bay, tasting an apple picked right from the tree and, of course, their first Manson Apple Blossom parade.

I have traveled some since graduating Manson High School: Home of the Trojans, but the Chelan/Manson area is still the most beautiful place I’ve ever seen.

Home.

And no fire is ever going to change that.

Some of you know (and the rest of you will, now) that I grew up in a tiny little village on the most beautiful lake in the world, Lake Chelan.

My graduating class was 24 people, and at the time, we were a "big" class.

Lake Chelan is a resort and vacation destination, and people from all over the world flock to its shores to enjoy the water, the mountains, the slower pace of life, and the local love.

Fresh, local apples
It's the sort of place where the village really does raise each child... As kids, if we were out misbehavin' in public, if our parents didn't catch us, some other vigilant mama or daddy would. In a matter of moments, we'd be appropriately corrected, and our parents at home would be waiting, with a stern lecture.

It's the sort of place that inspires creativity. I don't know if living in the Chelan valley drives folks to create, or if creative types naturally end up here, but I count among my fellow grown children of Chelan numerous painters, sculptors, poets, authors, musicians, actors and more. It's as if the beauty of the valley comes spilling out through our pens, clay, paintbrushes, keyboards, vocal cords and brains. So much glory is impossible to contain.

View uplake from the deck of a house on one of the valley's smaller lakes
I've spent years in the cocoon-like sanctuary of Lake Chelan, learning to swim in the clear waters, eating apples fresh off the trees in my grandparents' orchard, sledding down the mighty mountains, sunbathing in the glorious rays with Sun-In streaked through my hair... It is where I had my first loves and inevitable heartbreaks, my first kisses, my first broken rules, attended my first "keggers," and delivered my only biological child.

There, too, I suffered a devastating miscarriage, and fell into the comforting arms of my "family" -- the friends, neighbors and co-workers I'd come to claim as my tribe.

The Chelan Valley is where I was encouraged to boldly pursue a love of poetry and writing, thanks to teachers like Mr. Korsborn and Mr. McClure. It is where I met Mr. Wright fifteen years ago, and began a new life with him that is beyond anything I could ever have imagined for myself.

Mr. Wright, the week we met in 2000
It was where my Princess truly became a princess, serving as Miss Lake Chelan royalty.

Celebrating Princess's election to the Miss Lake Chelan royal court
And the community? We take care of our own. When my brother was diagnosed with erythroleukemia, he required countless blood transfusions. Members of the community organized a blood drive, which offset the costs of his transfusions.

When individual families fall on hard times, their neighbors are there, to help them recover and get back on their feet. But... what happens when the loss is so great, we need to look outside our benevolent community for help?

That, my friends, is where we are, now.

Fires have ravaged our community, taking with them homes, memories, business, and... lives. So far, we've lost three heroic firefighters. Businesses have burned to the ground, leaving little but a scorched sign to mark what was once a thriving merchant-place. Houses have been destroyed, the photos and mementos of the families who once felt safe within their walls nothing more now than ash and dust.

We need help. As much help as possible. And so, I am asking all of you to please do what you can to help my home. Please see the introduction of this post for ways you can help, and come visit us, if you can! We'd love to welcome you into our family.

Sexy Vegan Mama's Easy Falafel with Sweet Lemon Tahini Dressing

 I was born in a small town...

Actually, I was born in Seattle, which is not exactly a small town, but certain neighborhoods within it have a significant "small town" vibe.

Ballard, I'm looking at you.


Anyway, now I live in a small town. Well, small-ish. Small enough that we don't have a ton of groovy food trucks (although we DO have RĂ¥, which is a kickass, vegan-friendly, hip little truck owned by some of the nicest people you'll ever meet) which offer up a wide variety of ethnic fare, beyond several taco wagons, which serve up such delicacies as beef tongue and whatnot.

That being the case, when I have a craving for homemade falafel, the choices are fairly limited. So, I make my own, and serve it up with a decadent, tangy lemon tahini dressing. Here's how it goes:

Sexy Vegan Mama's Easy Falafel

1 - 15 oz. can chickpeas (a.k.a. garbanzo beans), drained
large handful fresh parsley, finely chopped
juice of 1/2 lemon
1/2 t. cumin
3-4 cloves garlic, minced
1 small onion, minced
1/4 t. black pepper
dash cayenne pepper
1/2 c. garbanzo flour

You will also need:

pastry blender or food processor
oil for frying
large, deep skillet or wok, OR a deep-fryer
candy thermometer to check oil temperature


Finely chop the chickpeas either in a food processor or in a medium bowl with a pastry blender.

Add chopped parsley, lemon juice, cumin, minced garlic, minced onion, pepper and cayenne. Mix well.

Stir in garbanzo flour, a bit at a time, until the mixture is stiff enough to roll into a ball which does not fall apart.

Heat oil in fryer, deep skillet or wok to 350 degrees F. You will need a minimum of three inches of oil.

Do a texture test by rolling into a ball a walnut-sized scoop of the mixture, then flattening slightly into a "medallion" shape. Place the medallion into the heated oil and fry about three minutes, or until golden brown. If it falls apart, or does not hold up well to the frying, add more flour.

Roll, flatten and fry the rest of the mixture, draining on paper towels after removing from oil.

Makes about 20 falafel medallions.

Drizzle with Sweet Lemon Tahini Dressing, below.


Sweet Lemon Tahini Dressing 

juice of one lemon
1/2 c tahini
2 T agave nectar, maple syrup, or other natural sweetener
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/4 c. olive oil
2 T water

In a blender, combine all ingredients.

Blend until well-mixed. More or less water may be added to achieve the consistency desired.

Store any leftover dressing in a sealed container in the refrigerator.

Makes a great salad dressing, and is yummy over pasta, too!
