Conscientious Cowboy Beans - Vegan & GF

 Here is a great bean dish for those of you wanting to reduce the amount of fat you are consuming. (And a delicious way to increase your fiber.)  Kids will like these beans too because there are no onions.

This recipe has one added tablespoon of brown sugar in the entire dish of beans, which is uncommon for a baked bean dish. I would even feel comfortable leaving that one tablespoon of sugar out, since there is some sugar in the can of  Bush's Vegetarian Baked Beans.

Weight watchers can estimate the entire dish has 38 points. Divide the dish into 8 servings for example and count 5 points per serving.

If you are a Forks Over Knives follower, this is perfect.

Conscientious Cowboy Beans - Vegan & GF          Makes 6-8 servings
1 28oz can Bush's Vegetarian Baked Beans, or any other brand you like
1 15oz can red beans, any brand. Drained and rinsed.
1 15oz can  navy or small white beans, any brand. Drained and rinsed.
1 15oz can tomato sauce
1 medium apple, any variety you like. Peeled and finely chopped.
2 tsp minced garlic
1 Tbsp chili powder
1 Tbsp brown sugar, may be omitted

Combine all ingredients in a 2qt casserole dish and bake for 1 1/2 hours at 350. Or use a slow cooker and let them cook all day.

Simple, healthy and delicious.
