#10DaysofTailgate: Smoky Karma Stovetop Beans


Thanks to a trio of sponsor deliciousness, I am bringing these Smoky Karma Stovetop Beans to our #10DaysofTailgate party. You can heap these onto to hot dogs or spoon them over nachos. We just ate them straight from a bowl. Thanks to event sponsors: Bob's Red MillIntensity Academy, and Not Ketchup* for the great ingredients to make this dish extra special.



Ingredients

  • 1 lb 13 oz dried beans (I used Bob's Red Mill 13- Bean Soup Mix)
  • water
  • 4 oz pancetta
  • 1 onion, peeled and diced
  • 4 C vegetable broth
  • 4 C beef broth
  • 1/4 C Not Ketchup's Smoky Date
  • 1/4 C raw agave nectar
  • 2 T apple cider vinegar
  • 1 T Carrot Karma Hot Sauce by Intensity Academy
  • freshly ground salt, to taste
  • freshly ground pepper, to taste


Procedure
Place your dried beans in a pot and cover with, at least, 2" of water. Let soak overnight. Drain the beans and rinse them.

Slice your pancetta as thinly as you can.



In a large souppot, saute your onions and pancetta slices until the onions are translucent and the pancetta is cooked but not crisped.


Add the beans to the pot. Pour in the broth and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to a simmer and let cook for 60-90 minutes, until beans are just tender. Add boiling water to beans if they begin to dry out during cooking.

Stir in the Not Ketchup, agave, vinegar, and Carrot Karma sauce. Simmer for another 30-40 minutes until thickened. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Serve hot.
