Healthy 'Baked' Beans


Do your kiddos love baked beans? Canned baked beans are notoriously unhealthy, with loads of sugar and fat, no wonder they taste amazing. This recipe is packed full of flavor, simple to make, and above all, healthy. Beans are packed full of fiber and protein. This is a dish that you will want to make again and again. (Or just make a big 'ol batch and freeze and reheat). Comforting and delicious!

(Serves 2 kids)

1 can of Cannellini beans rinsed and drained
1/2 cup orange juice
1/4 cup onion, minced
2 tablespoons brown sugar
2 tablespoons tomato paste

1. In a small saucepan heat the onion until it begins to sweat.


2. Add the orange juice, tomato paste and brown sugar, stir until smooth. 

3. Once the mixture is smooth, add the beans. Heat until cooked through and serve.
