At the time I'm posting this there are two other vegan baked bean recipes on the Zaar, both look really good. I didn't find one for the crock pot however, using dried beans and no tomatoes.....so hopefully this fits that bill for someone else out there! I found the recipe online - http://www.beanbible.com. There are only a few things I tweaked, one being Bakon yeast. Unfortunately not something I'm at all familiar with or have ever seen in the stores, but I found out a little more about it and replaced it with some nutritional yeast & liquid smoke. Adjust the heat as you wish. NOTE: Soak the beans ahead of time (night before). The cooking time doesn't reflect the overnight soaking of the beans, but it does reflect the crock pot cooking time if set to low. Hope you enjoy!
