While in college, I studied abroad at the University of Manchester in England. At the time, I was a vegetarian and was pleasantly surprised at how delicious and diverse vegetarian food in Britain could be. My favorite meal, served at my favorite restaurant, was Beans Burgundy and after returning to the States, I created this version. As it simmers in the slow cooker and the enticing aroma fills the kitchen, I'm reminded of my time in England!
