Stove top Vegetarian Baked Beans

Yield: 8 servings, 2/3 cup each

Beans are an excellent source of meatless protein and fiber. This bacon- and pork-less version of a cherished side dish makes use of canned beans—no overnight soaking necessary. Spiked with apple-cider vinegar, Worcestershire and a little ketchup, this is one of the easiest—not to mention one of the tastiest—baked beans ever.
