Thanksgiving Baked Beans & Collard Greens
Thanksgiving is just a few days away. It is a time for family unity with much laughter and love. But most of all it is a time of the year when most of us give thanks unto the Lord for our families, our good health, our lives and most pf all for having HIM in our lives.
I am deeply grateful for having the gift of cooking. For creating dishes that are healthy and very tasty. This last week I made for the first time these easy baked beans with collard greens. They were absolutely delicious. So here is my recipe and I hope you enjoy them too.
You will need:
1 can of pinto beans
1 can of kidney beans
1 can of collard greens
(drain and rinse well the 3 top cans)
1 can of diced tomatoes
(drain the juice into a glass)
1 c. brown sugar
3 T. yellow mustard
1/2 c. ketchup
1/8 tsp. black pepper
1/8 tsp. salt
1/8 tsp. garlic powder
2 t. maple syrup
Mix well all the dry ingredients, then add all the other ingredients to it, then ad the juice of the tomatoes...taste to see if the flavor is pleasing unto you, if not add some extra salt, garlic powder & brown sugar (some people like their baked beans with more flavor or sweetness)...mix all the ingredients well and then place the beans in a baking pan, cover the pan with foil and place it in the oven for 25 minutes at 375. Then uncover and bake for another 20 minutes or until the juice evaporates a bit...enjoy.
Have a very Happy Thanksgiving.
