I'm the biggest carnivore you'd ever "meat", but have been trying to improve my diet as I get older. Part of that is going vegan 20 out of 21 meals a week (I give myself one cheat meal and go all out). Note - cooking time is mostly the beans soaking overnight


  1. Soak navy beans overnight.
  2. Rinse beans, cover with 2 inches of water and simmer for 1 1/2 hours (until beans are tender, but not mushy).
  3. Drain beans, reserving 2 cups of the bean juice.
  4. Add beans, bean juice and other ingredients to oven-proof dish, stir, and set oven to 250 degrees.
  5. Let the beans simmer along for 2-3 hours, stirring once an hour or so.
  6. Turn oven up to 350 for the last hour if they need to thicken up some more.
