Baked Beans

Servings: 6-8

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

4 15 ounce cans great northern beans
2 15 ounce cans mixed beans (see hints below)
1 onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 tablespoons water
½ cup molasses
1/3 cup ketchup
¼ cup vegetarian Worcestershire sauce
¼ cup brown sugar
3 tablespoons maple syrup
2 tablespoons dry mustard
1 teaspoon paprika
1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper
Dash liquid smoke (optional)

Drain beans and place in a large bowl. Place the onion, garlic and water in a small saucepan and cook until softened and water has evaporated. Add to beans. Add remaining ingredients and mix well. Transfer to a covered casserole dish. Bake covered for 1 hour, then remove cover and bake an additional 15 minutes.

Hints: Mixed beans are sometimes called chili beans. They are usually a variety of kidney, pinto and black beans. Or use your own variation of canned beans in this recipe, 6 cans total. These are always a favorite at potlucks.

Come on in for a nice cup of coffee and a chat about my weight loss journey as well as all the healthy recipes I have found, including WW points and/or nutritional information if available. I am eating a vegetarian diet and concentrating on getting healthy and hopefully weight loss will follow. Thank to all my readers for their ongoing support.
