Instructions

Peel and slice onions against the grain, This will cut through the cells and allow the juices to be released and creates very creamy, soft onions when browned. Slowly brown the onions in the olive oil allowing them to reduce and become very soft. Add canned beans with liquid and reduce to whole on a low simmer until the consistency of baked beans. Stir in liquid smoke and salt to taste. Note:Vidalia onions are incredibly sweet by nature and have very little spice to them. In this recipe, I created a twist on the classic baked beans dishes that use brown sugar, molasses, etc. to create sweetness in the dish. The version I made was very rich and sweet, but all of that came from the onions. This dish also happens to be vegan, but tastes a lot like you used smoked pork. If you cannot find Vidalia Sweet Onions, which only come from Georgia, you could substitute Walla Wall Sweet Onions, Mayan Sweets, or Maui Sweets.

Tips

Health Tips

  • Although the body needs salt to survive, most of us get too much. The problem with consuming too much salt (what chemists call "sodium chloride") is actually the sodium part, which is why people concerned about high blood pressure go on low-sodium diets. If you are trying to reduce salt in your diet, you can try salt substitutes like potassium chloride or try to make do with less salt by using more black pepper, herbs, and spices.

Cooking Tips

  • If you're using olive oil to cook at high temperatures, make sure that the olive oil you're using has a high smoke point because heating an oil past its smoke point can ruin the flavor and even release harmful compounds into your dish. Many people recommend saving extra-virgin olive oil for cold dishes or for adding the finishing touch to a warm dish. You could also use canola oil, coconut oil, or another good high-temperature oil to be on the safe side.

  • To keep your eyes from stinging and watering while cutting onions, trying popping the onion in the freezer for 15 minutes before you plan to start cooking. Chilling the onion slows the release of the enzyme responsible for teary eyes.

  • You should not store your onions with your potatoes because the gases they emit will make each other spoil faster. For more information about selecting and storing onions, check out this lesson about onions in the academy.
