Red Beans in Walnut Garlic Sauce

Serves 6

Ingredients:

  • 3 tablespoons vegan butter

  • 1/4 cup all purpose flour

  • 1-1/4 cups plain almond milk

  • 2 small garlic cloves, minced

  • 1 tablespoon minced chives

  • Salt and ground white pepper to taste

  • 2/3 cup of finely chopped walnuts

  • 2 (15-ounce) cans kidney beans, rinsed, drained


Directions:

  1. In a small pot over low heat, melt butter.  Stir in the flour and cook, stirring, until the flour is light brown.

  2. Whisk in milk, whisking constantly to keep lumps from forming. Increase heat to medium. Stir in garlic and cook, stirring often, until sauce thickens.

  3. Stir in walnuts and chives. Season with salt and pepper.

  4. Pour sauce over kidney beans, stirring to coat. Cover and let sit for 5 minutes.

  5. Toss beans and sauce again. Serve immediately.
