1/2 tsp. baking soda

6 cups water

buttery cooking spray

14 oz. plant based sausage
(We used Beyond Meat Beyond Sausage Brat Original.)

2 cups onion, finely chopped

12 oz. fake beef
(We used Morning Star Farms Veggie Grillers Crumbles.)

1/2 cup packed Splenda Brown Sugar Blend

1/2 cup no sugar added ketchup

1/2 cup no sugar added barbecue sauce
(We used Ray's No Sugar Added Sweet & Spicy Barbecue Sauce.)

2 tablespoons yellow mustard

2 tablespoons molasses

1/2 teaspoon chili powder

1 can (15 oz.) low sodium tomato sauce

I was looking for a baked bean recipe that wasn't so loaded with salt and sugar. This recipe from scratch takes a little longer to make, but WOW, does it taste good. It's the perfect dish to serve for the 4th of July.

1. Put the navy beans into your Instant Pot or a pressure cooker. Add the bay leaf and baking soda. Pour six cups of water over the top. Put the lid on and set it to pressure cook for 30 minutes.

2. About 15 minutes before the Instant Pot timer goes off, heat a non-stick pan over medium-high heat. Lightly coat the pan with buttery cooking spray. Cook the sausage for about 6 minutes, turning frequently. When finished, take the sausage out of the pan and set it aside.

3. Add some buttery cooking spray to the pan and stir in the onions. Cook them for about 2 minutes.

4. Now add the Morning Star Farms Grillers to the pan. Cook for another 2 minutes, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat and set aside.

5. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.

6. Once the timer goes off, release the pressure on your Instant Pot. Remove the bay leaf. Then drain the beans and put them in a large mixing bowl.

7. Add the meatless grillers and onion mixture to the cooked beans.

8. Mix in the Splenda brown sugar, ketchup, barbecue sauce, mustard, molasses, chili powder and the can of tomato sauce. Stir together.

9. Cut the sausage into bite-sized pieces and fold that into the bean mixture.

10. Lightly coat a 13 x 9 baking dish with buttery cooking spray. Pour the bean mixture into the baking dish and cover. Bake it for 45 minutes.

11. Remove dish from the oven after 45 minutes, take the cover off, put back in the oven and bake uncovered for another 10-15 minutes, or until heated through.
