These low-fat baked beans can also be cooked in a slow cooker, such as a crock-pot.
Preparation Time: 10 mins
Cooking Time: 6 hrs
Yield: 8 x 1/2 cup servings
Rinse beans in cold water then place in a large saucepan of boiling water. Return to the boil and cook for 2 minutes.
Remove from heat, cover and leave to swell and soften for 1 hour. Drain.
Place tomatoes, molasses, onion, dry mustard, Worcestershire sauce, and salt in a large casserole dish. Stir in prepared beans. Cover and place in a 300ºF slow oven for 4 to 6 hours. (Very slow baking allows the full flavor to develop.)
An equal amount of treacle can be used in place of molasses, if desired.
Ingredient suggestion is not included in the nutritional analysis.
If cooking in a slow cooker (crock-pot), make sure that there is sufficient liquid to just cover the beans.
