Stove Top


1 c
dried navy beans, soaked for at least 6 hours.
1 medium
yellow onion, finely diced
14 oz
can diced tomatoes (experiment with the different flavors)
1 clove
minced garlic
1 tsp
dried oregano (basil is also fine)
1 1/2 Tbsp
maple syrup (honey is also fine)
1 Tbsp
soy sauce
1/2 tsp
dijon mustard
4 c
vegetable broth (or water)
1 1/2 c
chicken broth (or water)
extra virgin olive oil

Directions Step-By-Step

Thoroughly rinse and drain soaked beans.
In a heavy saucepan, cook the onions, garlic, and oregano in olive oil over low to medium heat for about 5 minutes, or until the onions are translucent.
Add the navy beans and all other ingredients except the tomatoes. Place lid on saucepan, but leave it open just a crack to allow steam to escape, and cook over low to medium heat for about an hour.
Add tomatoes and cook for another 3 to 4 hours over low to medium heat. As the ingredients cook, check the saucepan from time to time to make sure that everything is well covered with liquid.
When mixture has thickened, it's ready to be served. Enjoy!
