Lower Carb Baked Beans

I got some nitrate free, grassfed beef hotdogs ($8.00 for 8), but they were nommie..So, I wanted to make some beloved baked beans..

This is what I did for 4 servings:

One can of Great Northern or navy or pinto beans, drained of the liquid.
KC Masterpiece Low Calorie Barbecue Sauce or any low carb bsauce or make your own sauce
Real bacon pieces or cooked bacon, cut up.
Splenda to taste or Brown Diabetisweet..

Mix this in a small saucepan and cook for 15 minutes or so..
You can also put this in the oven in a small covered casserole.

I have used the black soybeans before, but these beans were wonderful..

Special treat for those who are eating a higher carb diet.

1/2 cup of the beans only has 12 net carbs.

Carolyn your recipe sounds delish!

For those who cannot afford that many carbs. I worked out a good
BBQ baked beans with soy beans: We liked it very much.


LC BBQ Beans TNT

3 cans Libby soybeans, drain 2 cans
Put this into your slow cooker.
4 slices bacon, cubed and cooked
2-3 oz. red onion sautéed in bacon fat
3/4 bottle Walden BBQ Sauce (or your choice)
LC catsup (I make my own) or use LC catsup
Hickory smoke to taste
Seasoning mix (salt, pepper, garlic/onion powder)
2 tbs. Brown Diabetisweet. (This is a good brown sugar sub)
It's made with IsomaltI used my own discretion on the amounts. Let it cook on high
for about 3-4 hours until bubbly. They were just like
our other home made BBQ beans. We were very pleased.

Black beans are also fairly low in carbs. I can't do soy, Barbo, but I think they would closer to the soy beans in size, moisture content, etc.? What a great idea, Carolyn!

Thanks Barbo!

Thanks to C. for reminding us all of these good bean dishes.

I looked up the carb count on the "beans"..Black beans and Great Northern have the same carb count for 1/2 cup...12 net carbs.

I shouldn't do the black soybeans, either. But it is nice that we can all practice portion control and still have some baked beans, huh?

Barbo, I bought a couple of cans of white soy beans at the 99-Cents Only store before they closed and haven't decided what to use them for yet. When you cook them in the crock pot do they eventually get soft like regular baked beans?

I make a high carb dish for my husband called Shipwreck which is canned pork and beans added to ground beef that's been browned with onions. You also add some brown sugar and ketchup to the mix. I think it would be fun to come up with a low carb version of Shipwreck using baked soy beans.

I bought some dried white soy beans and thought I could mix them with the canned black soy beans for a soup or baked bean recipe. I have never reconstituted dried beans before but it looks as though soy beans need to cook for a much longer time once soaked than other types of beans.

Has anyone tried cooking dried beans in the crock pot?

Vicki: I think I did once..Soaking them overnight definitely helps. They take a really long time to cook I think..And, because the soy beans have more protein, they might take longer than normal beans.

TEnderness

Yes after slow cooking they were nice and tender. Actually they
were not hard to begin with. My soy was Libby canned goods.
Also can get them at Trader Joe's.

The ones I have are Libby's. We don't have Trader Joe's in Houston, unfortunately.

Dana Carpender soaks them, cooks them, and freezes them. She says this breaks down the soybean better than just cooking.

I cook dried soy beans but don't use a slow cooker. It simply takes too long (8 to 9 hours) I like mine soft so I use twice as much baking soda. Blanch them first.

Soybeans are or should be blanched before cooking to destroy lipoxygenase, an enzyme that can lead to an off-flavor. Blanching does not hydrate the soybeans enough to be eaten. The beans must be cooked after the blanching process. I put soda in the blanching and more in the cooking. Blanch at a hard boil for 5 minutes then drain and add more water and baking soda. Cook for 1 and a half hours at a boil, then start testing for texture.

Adding a 1 teaspoon of baking soda to the cooking water will help soften the soybeans and shorten cooking time. Using baking soda is especially helpful if the cooking water contains minerals that will keep the beans from absorbing sufficient water during cooking. Only a small amount of baking soda is needed, adding too much will make the beans mushy.

Barbo - what do you estimate the carb count to be on your recipe? Sound great!
