Wieners (Sausages) and Beans

A classic supper for kids, made healthier

Margo DeMello

  • This is an easy meal that you can feel good about giving your children. No nitrosamines here! Meredith Lee/The HSUS

Serves 3

1 cup (225g) tomato puree
One 15-ounce can (425g) white beans, drained and rinsed
1/4 teaspoon paprika
1/4 teaspoon turmeric
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon mustard powder
1 teaspoon sugar
1/2 teaspoon vinegar
1/2 teaspoon vegetarian Worcestershire sauce (or make your own Worcestershire sauce)
3 veggie hot dogs, sliced

In a medium saucepan, mix all the ingredients except for the hot dogs.

Bring to a boil and let simmer, uncovered, for 10 minutes to allow the flavors to mingle.

Stir in the sliced veggie dogs and heat for another 5 minutes.

Tip: If you can't find Worcestershire sauce and don't want to make your own, you can swap in half a teaspoon of soy sauce plus a dash of vinegar.
