Nelson and I had the best vegan smoky beans ever at a small pub in Hillsborough, North Carolina. Of course, then my challenge was to create my own version that
would be every bit as flavorful. Luckily, it came together quickly, and I hit upon the
perfect combination of smoky ingredients. The secret to achieving the right texture is to puree half of the beans.
