Good Meals With Baked Beans

From celebrating July 4th to hosting a barbeque with family and friends, there are an array of good meals with baked beans that can be dished out and drooled over when the time comes. It’s important to note that baked beans are not normally vegan as they usually contain ingredients like bacon, sausage, and sometimes baked beans contain gravy which can contain eggs and milk. Make sure to double-check the ingredients list as brands won’t state if there is a meat product in a food product. This is advised from a place of personal experience as I, thankfully, double-checked the ingredients list on a can of beans and discovered there was bacon added into it (yet no dairy or eggs).

Provided below are proven vegan baked beans products that are safe for vegans to consume, along with meals and recipes to boast the rich, sweet, and sometimes spicy, flavor of baked beans.

BBQ Jackfruit Sandwich

If you’ve never tried a BBQ Jackfruit sandwich, now’s the time!

Jackfruit is utilized by many vegans for its versatile texture and its ability to take on different flavors from marinades and seasonings alike. One common usage for jackfruit, by vegans anyways, is in the vegan-ized version of a “pulled pork” sandwich. In this case, a BBQ jackfruit sandwich is a perfect pair-up for baked beans, especially during the summer months, barbeques, and July 4th.
