I got the original recipe from The Vegetarian Passport Cookbook. My vegetarian daughter and I both enjoy this recipe and make it regularly.

Wow, this was really delicious and so simple to make! I think it is very important to find flavorful veg baked beans, though, as that flavor is really dominant in the dish. I didn't change a thing with this one and I'm so glad I didn't--DH, toddler DS and I gobbled it up! I think the flavor probably really develops the second day, but I won't know because we didn't have any left LOL. Thanks so much for a deliciously different veg dinner! Made for Healthy Choices tag.
