Can I just tell you all how excited I am for a healthy baked beans recipe?! When I saw this recipe in the Country Heat Program booklet I did a happy dance! Since choosing to eat better 2 years ago I have missed baked beans at cookouts. Now, sometimes I do sneak some in, I’m human and they complete a cookout for me!
Baked beans go so well with burgers, potlucks and get togethers! I love to host family and friends so I am excited to have a recipe that won’t take me off track and still be a crowd pleaser.
I was afraid to try this out because I thought they wouldn’t taste good. Honestly, I went in with the thought they would never make the blog…I was SO WRONG!
I won’t keep you waiting any longer…here’s the recipe!
Smoked Baked Beans : Country Heat
Makes 8 servings, 1/2 cup each
4 tsp olive oil
1 medium yellow onion chopped
1 15 oz can plain tomato sauce, no sugar added
1 T Worcestershire sauce
2 T liquid smoke (I used Colgin)
3/4 tsp dijon mustard
3 T pure maple syrup or molasses
2 cans (15 oz each) cannellini beans, rinsed and drained, preferably organic
Salt to taste (optional)
- Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
- Heat oil in overproof saucepan over medium-high heat.
- Add onion, cook for 4-6 minutes till onions are cooked.
- Add tomato sauce, Worcestershire sauce, liquid smoke, mustard, molasses, beans and salt. Stir frequently for 5 minutes over medium-low heat.
- Place saucepan in oven, bake for 45-50 minutes or until sauce is thick.
Optional: Add 4 slices chopped cooked turkey bacon but this would add containers. If you are following the Country Heat, 21 day fix or Beachbody container system this recipe counts as 1 yellow, 1/2 purple and 1/2 tsp.
