A simple baked beans recipe - suitable for vegetarians/vegans. Can be made on the stove top, in the oven, or in a crock pot.
4 tsp rice bran oil
2 cups dried navy beans, soaked and cooked (or 6cups cooked or canned navy beans) (drain and rinse canned beans before use)
2 onions, finely diced
2 cloves garlic, crushed
3 (400g) tins of chopped tomatoes in juice
1 cup water
8 tsp golden syrup
4 tsp blackstrap molasses
1 bay leaf
1/2 tsp ajowan seeds, crushed (optional - these help reduce gas)
1/4 tsp allspice
2 tsp dry mustard (increase to 4 tsp next time)
1/4 tsp liquid smoke
4 tsp apple cider vinegar
Soak and cook your dried beans the day before to save on prep time, else allow an extra 2-3 hours (depending on whether or not you have a pressure cooker).
2. Add all other ingredients and stir well
3. Simmer over low heat for about 2 hours.
You could also bake this in the oven at 160 degrees celcius, provided your casserole has a tight lid and you check often to make sure it doesn't dry out - or reduce the water to 1/2 cup and cook in a pressure cooker all day.
Serving Size: Makes 8 servings of about 1.5 cups each.
Number of Servings: 8
