Healthy slow cooked baked beans (slow cooker recipe) 107 cals

I loved baked beans, but not so happy with all the sugar that is added - the low sugar variety just don't taste nice to me!

So here's a healthy version of baked beans - I make a huge batch and freeze them in batches of 2 portions. Easily defrosted overnight and added to breakfast (as I did this morning!) 408 calories for this breakfast!

Despite the mention of Tabasco, paprika and lots of mustard, the beans have a nice "kick" to them, but aren't hot or spicy.

Preparation Time:15 mins

Cooking Time:8 hrs

Serves:10

Calories per serving:107.1

Ingredients

Red Onions -280g

Fresh Garlic -3 Cloves/9g

Olive Oil -6ml

Haricot Beans, in Water, Drained -3 Cans/705g

Chopped Tomatoes, in Rich Tomato Juice -2 Cans/800g

Worcestershire Sauce -20g

Brown (HP) Sauce -20g

Ground Cumin -1 Tsp/5g

Paprika -1 Tbsp/7g

Balsamic Vinegar -20ml

Whole Grain Mustard -45g

Tomato Puree, Double Concentrate -100g

Tabasco Sauce -10ml

Method

Peel and finely chop onion. Peel and finely chop garlic. Place oil into a large frying pan and heat over a medium heat. Add onions and cook for 5 minutes before adding garlic. Do not allow to brown.

Add all the other ingredients into the pan and stir well.

Transfer into a slow cooker and cook on the medium setting for 5 hours, or 2-2.5 hours on the high setting.

The HP sauce is the only added sugar and contained 23g of sugar per 100g (4.5g of sugar for this recipe)

Lovely, Pineapple, you've done it again! Thanks so much for sharing with us! They look and sound delicious! :)

They definitely taste super yummy. I've reached a point where I find the bought low sugar ones are edible but would rather try yours by a mile.

Thanks!

I'll pass.

Another advert for a slow cooker! Sounds yum! Maybe I'll eventually get one :)

They're great because they don't use much electricity and are safe to leave on during the day if you are out somewhere....

Which all appeals to me :)

Lots of great Black Friday deals around at the moment... you can get a small one for under £17 and some well known decent brands for under £25.... the on-line "A" shop and the Catalogue "A" shop both have some deals!

Thanks! :)

Sounds and looks good something I will try Thank You
