Default Low Carb "Baked" Black Soy Beans

Low Carb "Baked" Black Soy Beans

Made stovetop and serves three

My apologies! I neglected to mention that the counts for calories, carbs, fiber, and protein below include ONLY the beans, tomato sauce, vinegar and onion powder that were actually measured. You have to add in counts for bacon and other ingredients you add to taste. My recipe using artificial sweetener came to about 170 calories, 14g carbs, 8g fiber, 6 net carbs, 14g protein per serving.

There are a million ways to make baked beans, but here's what I did:

15oz. can of Eden Organic Sodium Free Black Soy Beans (available in health food section of some grocery stores or online)
6 to 8 oz. canned tomato sauce
1 1/2 to 2 tablespoons vinegar
1 teaspoon onion powder
sweetener to taste (be sure artificial sweetener can be used in prolonged cooking)

Suggested seasonings to taste can be adjusted any time during cooking:
salt or salt substitute
yellow prepared mustard
ground cloves
Worcestershire sauce
minced onion (fresh or dehydrated)
chili powder
crumbled cooked bacon (I used three slices of turkey bacon)

Stovetop Directions:
Mix together all ingredients except bacon. Simmer, stirring occasionally, at least 1 1/2 hours--2 1/2 hours is better. Can also be prepared the day before and reheated. Add the cooked, crumbled bacon just before serving.
