Vegetarian Calico Beans (Onion and Garlic Free)

Made in a crockpot, beans don't get any easier. Those without an intolerance to onion and garlic can certainly save a step and substitute regular ketchup for the homemade variety. These are vegetarian and onion- and garlic-free.

Ingredients (Makes 12 servings)
1 can great Northern beans, drained and rinsed
1 can butter beans, drained and rinsed
1 can kidney beans, drained and rinsed
1/2 cup onion and garlic free ketchup
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 tsp ground mustard
1 tbsp vinegar

Place all ingredients in a slow cooker. Cook on low for 5-6 hours. This is enough for my family. I double  (or triple!) the recipe for potlucks and picnics.

  1. Mmm! I love my crockpot. And I like good baked beans. This is a fun blog, Barb! We eat veggie a few times a week, so I'm going to have to stop by again!
