Bean Dinner – Comforting and Autumny

I made this for a harvest party last month and promised to get it posted. I presumed I’d make it again but we’ve traveled and I’ve been a bit unpredictable lately, so no picture, but here’s the recipe. It’s yummy, pretty cheap with good protein, and SUPER FAST, and if you’re really lucky, on a cold day it will warm you to the bone. Even my two-year-old loves it, but who doesn’t love beans and sausage in a tomato-y mustardy brown sugary sauce?

Hot Bean Dinner
1 tsp. Vegetable Oil
1 link (16 to 20 oz.) Kielbasa or Smoked Sausage, cut into 1 inch pieces
1 medium yellow onion, chopped
3 cans beans, may include Lima or Butter beans, Kidney beans, Cannelini, drained
1- 15 oz. can tomato sauce
2-Tablespoons Brown Sugar
3-Tablespoons Worcestershire Sauce
3-Tablespoons Spicy Brown Mustard

Brown sausage, and add onion, cooking until softened. Add everything else, bring to a boil, cover, and then simmer for 15 minutes!! Can be kept warm or on low heat for a long time, reheats and freezes well.

Serve with buttered bread, best with rye.
