Baked beans are often made with bacon and a ton of brown sugar. This healthier version is tasty and made from clean ingredients.
2 cans or 4 cups of cooked navy bean (drained and rinsed)
1 medium onion, minced
3 cloves of garlic, minced
1 cup of tomato sauce
¼ cup of apple cider vinegar
3 tablespoons of vegan Worcestershire sauce
¼ cup of pure maple syrup
2 tablespoons of unsulphured molasses
2 tablespoons of yellow mustard
¼ teaspoon of smoked paprika
½ teaspoon of freshly ground black pepper
1 teaspoon of sea salt
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. In a large pot, add the chopped onion and stir, cook for about 4-5 minutes, until soft. Then add the garlic and cook for 1 more minute. Add remaining ingredients minus the beans. Stir well, then add the drained and rinsed beans. Transfer to a large casserole dish and cover with foil. Bake for 1 hour. The sauce should thicken a bit.
