Add about one tablespoon of water to a pan on medium-high heat. Cook the onions and garlic until softened and translucent, about 5 minutes. Add tomato paste, smoked paprika, oregano, coconut sugar and soy sauce and cook for another 2 minutes.
Add the drained beans and the tomato passata and cook until thickened, at least 5 minutes. To give a deeper taste, add liquid smoke and Worcestershire sauce (make sure to use a vegan version, which you should find in the organic section of most grocery stores).
