Ingredient Notes:

Pinto Beans: A common bean you can find in the grocery store. Pinto beans are a great source of fiber, and protein, and are rich in antioxidants.

Herbs: The go-to herbs for any Greek-style dish are oregano, parsley, and thyme. The olive oil and feta are just the icing on the cake.

How to make homemade baked beans:

  1. Preheat the oven to 375F.
  2. In an ovenproof pot (or frying pan and have a second pan ready to transfer to), heat the olive oil over medium heat. Once warm, add the onion and garlic and saute until softened, about 5-6 minutes. Stir in the spices, saute until fragrant, about 1-2 minutes.
  3. Stir in tomato paste and cook for 1 minute.
  4. Add tomatoes and their juices, water and beans and turn to medium-high heat to bring to a simmer. Remove the pot from the heat, put the lid on and transfer the dish to the oven. Bake for 30-40 minutes until thickened and bubbling.
  5. Top the baked beans with fresh parsley, crumbled feta cheese and a drizzle of olive oil if desired. Serve with toasted bread on the side or serve the beans on the toasted bread.
