How to Make Healthy Baked Beans

  • 2In 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.
  • 3Add 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.
  • 4Add 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.
  • 5When mixture has thickened, it's ready to be served. Enjoy!
