Baked beansSubmitted by: RUTHXG
Soak overnight or by quick method:
1 lb. navy beans (or other small white beans--or kidney beans, for that matter!)
2 qts. water
In same liquid, bring beans to boil and simmer till tender, about 1.5 hours. Drain, reserving liquid.
Preheat oven to 275-300F. Combine in 2-qt. casserole:
1/2 c. molasses
1/4 c. ketchup (optional)
2 t. mustard
2 t. salt**
1/8 t. black pepper
1 T. chili powder
1 onion, chopped
bean liquid to cover
**Of course, if you need to restrict sodium, you may want to diminish the salt.
Serves 8 with a serving size of 3/4 cup. However, 1/2 c. is quite satisfying as a side dish, so remember to figure calories as 0.66/serving if you restrict yourself to 1/2 c. Servings of 1/2 c = 12.
