Baked Beans Vegetarian Style

READY IN: 12hrs 15mins
Recipe by Emily Nelfnoffen

I like this as it has a light flavour without being too salty or too sweet. When I made it, I used small red beans. Next time, I plan on doubling this because as is, it was simply gone too fast!

Yum! Great comfort food! I used a combination of pinto, red kidney and small white beans! I added a 1/2 teaspoon of chili powder. Made for TOTM tag.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Precook beans in boiling water for 2 minutes. Cover and let stand 1 hour. Then simmer for 1 hour until tender. Drain, reserving liquid. Mix beans with onion if using. Place beans in crock pot.
  2. Mix 1 1/2 cup reserved liquid, brown sugar, molasses, salt and mustard. Pour over beans and dot with butter. Cover and cook for 6-12 hours on low setting.
  3. Meat could be added as the beans are put in the crockpot, salt pork cut into chunks, or bacon as your personal preferences desire.
  4. The crockpot can be used on high to half cooking time, but the longer slower cooking time gives the beans a truly deep and rich flavour.
