WW Recipe of the Day: Slow Cooker Moroccan Baked Beans
(150 calories | 3 1 1 myWW *SmartPoints value per serving)
While I love baked beans, I have to admit that I’ve never actually tried making them before.
Since Martha had such a good result making these more traditional slow cooker baked beans, I knew the slow cooker was definitely the way to go.
I found this recipe for Slow-Cooked Moroccan Baked Beans in Homemade in a Hurry: More than 300 Shortcut Recipes for Delicious Home Cooked Meals – my new favorite cookbook, by my new favorite cookbook author, Andrew Schloss.
Since the recipe leaped off the page at me, I figured this is the one that I wanted to make in my crock pot.
The Skinny on Slow Cooker Moroccan Baked Beans
The beans came out so tender, flavorful and delicious. We enjoyed them with some grilled chicken breasts and a simple green salad.
While these beans taste great by themselves, I could also imagine adding in some already-cooked shredded rotisserie chicken for a quick lunch.
