Ingredients
  • 1½ tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 medium-large onion, quartered and thinly sliced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • Two 15- to 16-ounce cans navy (small white) beans, drained and rinsed, or 3 to 3½ cups cooked
  • ⅓ cup good-quality ketchup
  • 3 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 1 tablespoon molasses or barley malt syrup (or use an extra tablespoon of maple syrup instead)
  • 1½ teaspoons yellow or Dijon-style mustard
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • ¼ teaspoon ground ginger
Instructions
  1. Heat the oil in a large skillet. Add the onion and sauté over medium-low heat until translucent. Add the garlic and continue to sauté until the onion is golden.
  2. Add the remaining ingredients to the skillet, plus 3 tablespoons water, stir together.
  3. Continue to cook for 10 to 15 minutes over low heat, stirring occasionally. The sauce should be nicely thickened and enveloping the beans. Serve at once.
