Barracho beans on toast for breakfast, lunch or dinner on Meatless Monday

No one's saying you have to go meatless just because it's Monday -- but as incentive to join the growing movement, every week we're offering an animal-free recipe.

This recipes blends two cuisine styles for the best of both worlds: We're taking the English tradition of eating baked beans on toast and replacing the baked beans with a recipe from south of the border -- drunken beans, aka barracho beans (recipe adapted from Moosewood New Classics). It's a non-traditional take on a Brit breakfast or snack that can be enjoyed at any hour of the day.
