Plated + Served: Vegetarian Baked Beans


Yup, Baked Beans… and these take a looooonnnngggg time to cook.

But. Oh. How delicious. How sweetly delicious. And the perfect balance for all that spicy grilled or smoked barbecue you’ll be sliding onto the plate this weekend.

Never thought I would put this much effort into beans.

But I did. And so will you. These are my take on Boston Baked Beans. Traditionally, BBB are made with salt pork or bacon. Not a trace of meat in this recipe… but still amazingly flavorful.

Crank up the oven! These beans go great with everything: fried chicken, hamburgers, steaks…

      I know, I know… I made them for my vegetarian daughter, but I ate them as well and photographed my plate. Still, not as high in calories as having pork in the beans!
