How to Make Healthy Baked Beans

Step-by-Step

  1. Thoroughly rinse and drain soaked beans.
  2. In a heavy saucepan, cook the onions, garlic, and oregano in olive oil over low to medium heat for about 5 minutes, or until the onions are translucent.
  3. Add the navy beans and all other ingredients except the tomatoes. Place lid on saucepan, but leave it open just a crack to allow steam to escape, and cook over low to medium heat for about an hour.
  4. Add tomatoes and cook for another 3 to 4 hours over low to medium heat. As the ingredients cook, check the saucepan from time to time to make sure that everything is well covered with liquid.
  5. When mixture has thickened, it's ready to be served. Enjoy!
