This recipe was dictated to me by my friend Marisa. I’ve tweaked it over the years, but it tastes as miraculous now as it did then. It is semi-homemade—the canned vegetarian beans are augmented with great-tasting add-ins, then the whole thing is baked for a long time so the flavors blend.
Stir these together in a 2-quart casserole
3 cans (15-16 oz. each) vegetarian baked beans
3/8 cup ketchup
One spoonful mustard
Scant ¼ cup brown sugar
1 small or 1/2 large onion, chopped
1 small or 1/2 large green pepper, chopped
Bake, covered, for 2.5 hours total: 30 minutes at 500⁰, one hour at 350⁰, and one hour at 200⁰.
Timing: About 3 hours, start to finish
Nutrition: Mostly whole-food
