Skinny Classic Baked Beans

Your search might just be over…These classic baked beans are simply wonderful. You’ll love the ease of this recipe, too. Made with such a rich barbecued flavor and a bit of a kick. Great to serve for barbecues or picnics with chicken, beef, pork, burgers or hot dogs. Many recipes for baked beans include bacon or chunks of pork. My recipe is completely vegetarian so it would be super tasty served over brown rice or roasted vegetables. The skinny for each serving, 168 calories, 1 gram of fat and 5 Weight Watchers POINTS PLUS.

Prep Time: 15 minutes
Bake Time: 40 minutes


Ingredients

1 teaspoon olive oil

1 medium onion, minced

2 cans (15 oz each) pinto beans, rinsed ad drained

1 can (15 oz) petit diced tomatoes

½ cup ketchup

½ cup brown sugar

3 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce

3 tablespoons spicy brown mustard or prepared yellow mustard (not Dijon)

Several drops of Tabasco, to taste


Instructions

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a large nonstick pan, heat olive oil.  Add onions and sauté until tender, about 5 minutes. Add beans and remaining ingredients. Mix well and cook on medium for about 5 minute.

2. Pour flavored beans into a greased 2 quart casserole dish (or similar size) ovenproof pan. Bake until beans are bubbly, about 35-40 minutes and until beans are tender.  Let stand to thicken slightly and serve. I like to make this recipe the day before and let thicken overnight.

Makes about 5½ cups (each serving ½ cup)


Food Fact

Baked beans are believed to be based on a Native American dish in which beans were cooked with fat and maple syrup. European settlers are thought to have adapted the recipe using pork and molasses.


Healthy Benefit

Beans are loaded with protein and fiber. They actually contain a wider variety of healthy nutrients than most foods. These include calcium, potassium, vitamin B6, magnesium, folate, and alpha-linolenic acid.

    Thanks Stephie…They really do make a terrific side dish!

  4. Adrienne Says:

    These look AWESOME! I am going to make this week. Just a quick side note for those who are strict vegetarian: Worcestershire sauce generally contains some fish ingredients. It is totally possible to purchase varieties without but if you just grab one from the store it probably contains anchovies.

    Thanks for sharing such a great tip Adrienne. I hope you enjoy the beans!
