Baked Beans

I attend the Rochester Area Vegetarian Society meetings every month, and there is always a baked bean dish there, and I've always enjoyed these. However, I've never prepared them at home.

I sauteed an onion in canola, then added a can of Heinz vegetarian baked beans, some frozen corn, and two chopped veggie dogs. A serving of this made for a terrific in-between workouts snack.

Speaking of my triathlon training, I am sitting here with an ice pack on my knee, which I hope helps before meeting up with my friend to go running this evening. Otherwise, everything is great!

Can't wait to hear about your race!!! Keep up the great training work. (And i know it IS work!!!)

Great that you are keeping fortified with good foodstuffs.

I love mixing Smart Dogs into veg baked beans. (Have you tried Bush's? I prefer them to Heinz.) It's comfort food for me!

baked beans from a can?? NO! NO! NO! that is just WRONG! It must be a New England thing.... I'll have to send you my recipie - minus the bacon... may need a touch more salt tho. it is slow cooked and much thicker. and none of the preservatives and junk from the cans.

hope you knee is better!
