5 from 1 reviews

These simple and delicious baked beans make a tasty side dish. 


4 Tablespoons olive oil

2 garlic cloves, chopped

2 small onions, chopped

1 15 oz can baked beans (I use vegetarian baked beans but you can use regular)

1 15 oz can black beans

1 15 oz can white beans

1 15 oz can kidney beans 

1 cup water

2 Tablespoons dark brown sugar

¼ cup cider vinegar

1 teaspoon salt

½ teaspoon freshly ground pepper

3 Tablespoons molasses

1 teaspoon dry mustard ( or 1 tablespoon dijon mustard)

½ cup tomato puree (or ketchup)


  1. Preheat oven to 350 F.
  2. Chop the onion and garlic. Add olive oil to a dutch oven placed over medium heat. Add the chopped onion and garlic to the pan and sauteé for 5-7 minutes. 
  3. While the garlic and onion are cooking, gather together the rest of the ingredients. 
  4. Add all the ingredients to the pan and bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Once the mixture comes to a boil, turn off the heat under the beans.
  5. Place a lid on the pan and put them in a 350 F oven for 1 ½ hours. Stir twice during the hour and a half.
  6. Carefully remove the pot from the oven. Take the lid off and allow the beans to cool for a bit before serving.
  7. Allow to cool and store the leftovers covered in the refrigerator. 



These also freeze well if you want to make a double batch.
