Vegetarian Baked Beans

You’ll be surpised by how flavorful these beans are! Lightly sweet and spicy, these baked beans are a healthier alternative to the traditional sugar and pork fueled baked beans.  For the best results, cool completely after cooking. This will thicken the bean liquid and allow the flavors to marry. Reheat to serve.

Vegetarian Shopping Tip

Look for vegetables that are firm and bright in color – avoid those that are wilted or have wrinkled skins, which are signs of age.

Vegetarian Cooking Tip

Different vegetables have different cooking times – cook each type separately and then combine.
