Smoky Campfire Beans

Roberto Caruso

This side dish can be made entirely ahead and reheated at your campsite—almost as easy as cracking a can of beans, but way more delicious.


  • 1 tsp canola oil

  • 1 small onion, finely chopped

  • 1/4 cup fancy molasses

  • 1/4 cup maple syrup

  • 2 tbsp tomato paste

  • 2 tbsp Dijon mustard

  • 1/2 tsp salt

  • 1/4 tsp smoked paprika

  • 2 540-mL cans navy bean, drained and rinsed

  • 1/2 cup water


  • Heat a medium saucepan over medium. Add oil, then onion. Cook until onion is soft, about 4 min.
