Bush’s Best Vegetarian baked beans came out on top in a blind taste test I conducted for my two sons. Both of them preferred Bush’s compared to Heinz baked beans.
I was curious to know if they could really tell a difference between Bush’s Best and Heinz. Ironically, we like the Bush’s Vegetarian baked beans even though we aren’t vegetarians. So, I often pair the baked beans with organic beef hot-dogs or with chopped up pieces of turkey sausage.
Baked bean recipes are classic side dishes for picnics, Fourth of July parties and Memorial Day or Labor Day parties. They pair well with grilled chicken or hamburgers topped with chipotle mustard.
I love beans because they are so nutritious, providing a lot of dietary fiber. The Bush’s Best Vegetarian baked beans have a little too much sugar, but I discovered a little trick. I drain a lot of the sauce from the beans after cooking, and no one seems to notice. It’s also less mess for the plates.
Here are some things I learned about Bush’s Vegetarian Baked Beans from my review:
No. 1 Are Bush’s Baked Beans gluten free? Although there is no gluten free label on the Bush’s Baked beans, the vegetarian ones do not appear to contain any wheat or gluten.
No. 2: Bush’s Baked Beans can be heated up in the crock pot or slow cooker. If you are in a hurry, simply heat them up on the stove. It only takes a few minutes.
No. 3: Bush’s Baked Beans ingredients: Bush’s Vegetarian beans contain white beans, water, brown sugar, sugar, tomato paste, salt, mustard, corn starch, onion powder, spices, paprika, garlic powder.
No. 4: Bush’s Vegetarian Baked Beans calories: Bush’s contains 130 calories in a half cup as well as zero fat, 29 grams of carbs, 550 mg of sodium, 6 grams of protein, 12 grams of sugar and zero cholesterol.
No. 5: Bush’s Vegetarian Baked beans nutritional benefits: Baked beans provide 10 percent of the recommended iron and 4 percent calcium. They also contain 5 grams of fiber and fill you up longer.
If you are on a low-carb diet, it’s important to eat carbohydrates with a high amount of fiber such as beans. Make sure to drain most of the sauce so you can still enjoy the brown sugar flavor without too many sugar grams.
I personally enjoyed the rich flavor of the Bush’s Vegetarian Baked Beans. You could taste the brown sugar and the hint of spices, garlic and onion. But it did not contain any chunks of onions which my younger son despises! Also, all of us dislike the fatty pieces of bacon that float in some baked bean products and recipes.
I give the Bush’s Vegetarian Baked beans a five out of five stars for taste and 3.5 out of 5 for nutrition.
