Baked beans, by tradition, are very sweet! Baked beans also frequently have bacon or ham in them. So it’s a challenge to create a vegetarian low-carb baked beans recipe, but I am adapting a recipe from and making it low-carb and “Adventist non-vegetarian” or vegetarian.



  1. Preheat oven to 325° F.
  2. Melt butter in a pan over medium heat, add turkey bacon, and cook until crispy.
  3. Once bacon is crispy, remove bacon pieces from the pan and set aside. Leave the butter in the pan.
  4. Use the butter to cook the chopped onion until it is translucent.
  5. Once the onion is cooked, add salt, pepper, mustard powder, sugar-free ketchup, coconut aminos, and Swerve into the pan.
  6. Mix ingredients together and bring to a brief simmer.
  7. Add drained and rinsed can of black soy beans to an 8×8 casserole dish along with the bacon pieces.
  8. Add sauce to the casserole dish and spread evenly.
  9. Cover beans with foil and bake for 60-90 minutes, checking intermittently. If the beans appear to be getting dry, add a little water.
  10. Let cool and enjoy!
