Maple Beans, Eh?

Baked beans are one of my favourite comfort foods. In Eastern Canada, a traditional winter activity is to visit a "cabane à sucre", or sugar shack where they produce maple syrup. Part of the experience is a meal where foods like sausages, eggs, pancakes and baked beans are enjoyed in a communal setting! Traditionally, these beans are baked with lard but this recipe is vegetarian for all to enjoy!
