Low Fat, Low in Saturated Fat, Low Cholesterol, Cholesterol-Free, Trans-fat Free, High Fiber


2 ½ cups navy beans, dried
or kidney beans, soaked
cup molasses
¼ cup brown sugar
1 tablespoon dry mustard
¼ teaspoon cayenne pepper
1 teaspoon yeast, active dry
(bakon yeast available at health food stores)
2 teaspoons soy sauce, tamari
2 medium onions
chop in large pieces
2 each bay leaves
3 each garlic cloves
1 teaspoon salt
1 x black pepper
freshly cracked


Preheat the oven to 300 F.

Drain the beans, cover with fresh water, and bring to a boil for 5 minutes, then drain again.

Whisk together the molasses, sugar, mustard, cayenne, bacon yeast, and tamari in a bowl, then mix with the beans and add the onions, bay leaves, garlic, salt, and pepper.

Place in a bean pot or 2-quart baking dish and add water to cover the beans.

Cover and bake until the beans are very soft, 7 to 8 hours. Check periodically and add more water, if needed, to keep the beans from drying out. Remove the cover during the last half hour of cooking so a crust can form.
