Easy Homemade Not Baked Kidney Beans

healthy homemade baked kidney beans

I don’t know why baked beans are called baked beans… the ones you get in a can certainly don’t seem to have any sign of oven baked-ness. But who knows maybe they have many Nonas tucked away oven baking each can… or maybe not.

Anyways, these kidney beans are not baked either, hence the name, because baking sounds like it would take a long time, and I wanted these to be quick quick quick.

Not only are kidney beans an excellent source of fibre, they’re high in folate, manganese, protein, vitamin B1, iron, potassium and magnesium. Adding a homemade tomato sauce adds in an antioxidant rich element to the dish and provide an excellent amount of lycopene, vitamin C and beta-carotene, manganese, vitamin E and nearly every phytonutrients one can imagine. So basically these Not Baked Kidney Beans will not only keep you full, but you body will benefit greatly resulting in healthy skin and livers!

This is delicious served for breakfast with eggs, parsley, avocado and bacon! I like to pack it up in jars and take it to work along with my Life Changing Bread as pictured above. Alternatively serve on sourdough as below!
