My friend Grace fixed a version of these veggie baked beans for a July 4th picnic and I’ve since made it my own!


  • 2 cans vegetarian baked beans
  • ½ cup minced onions
  • ½ cup sliced celery
  • ¼ cup organic ketchup (no high fructose corn syrup)
  • ¼ cup sweetener(honey, real maple syrup)


Empty beans into a saucepan. Bring almost to a boil then simmer slowly

Sauté onions and celery until clear and add to beans.

Stir in ¼ cup organic ketchup. 

Add sweetener.

Simmer until flavors are blended and bean mixture is thick.

Serve. They go very well with the Potato Salad.
