An easy to make baked bean recipe using canned Vegetarian Beans. Combine with sautéed onion, flavor with mustard, Balsamic vinegar and brown sugar, then baked till steamy hot!

Serves 6-7

Preheat oven to 350 degrees

2 T. margarine

1 c. diced onion, ½ inch squares


2, 16 oz. cans Heinz Vegetarian Beans In Tomato Sauce (is gluten-free)

1-2 T. light brown sugar

1 T. Balsamic vinegar

1 T. prepared yellow mustard

1 T. light molasses

1 t. dry mustard

salt and black pepper

In medium skillet, over medium-low heat, melt margarine. Add onion, salt lightly, then sauté till soft and lightly brown-tinged.

In large mixing bowl combine beans, 1 tablespoon of brown sugar, vinegar, prepared yellow mustard, molasses and dry mustard. Add sautéed onion and stir well.

Once stirred, taste for sweetness and if you want more then add the second tablespoon of brown sugar.

Transfer to 1-1/2 quart baking dish. Bake, uncovered, in preheated 350 degree oven for 40-45 minutes.

Remove from oven immediately to prevent further evaporation of the liquid. Stir and serve.

Notes: Be sure to cook onion till soft before adding to the beans.

Nobody will know that you didn’t bake these beans from scratch. Serve as a family supper dish or on a buffet, or when you don’t know what to bring for a pot luck supper and you don’t have much time to prepare.
