  • 16 ounces dried navy beans
  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 3 ounces tempeh bacon
  • ½ cup ketchup
  • 32 ounces vegetable broth
  • 1 tablespoon molasses
  • ½ cup onion, diced
  • 1 teaspoon dry mustard
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon pepper


The night before cooking:

  • Place the beans in a very large stockpot or bowl.  Cover with water by about 4 inches above the beans.  Let soak on the counter overnight.  They will plump up.

The morning of cooking:

  • Drain the presoaked navy beans and put them in the slow cooker.
  • Add a tablespoon of oil in a small skillet and cook half of the vegan bacon on each side, it browns very fast.
  • When the bacon is done - slice into thin cross-slices.
  • While the bacon is cooking, dice the onion.
  • Add all of the ingredients to the slow cooker.
  • Turn on low and cook for 6 to 8 hours.
  • They can also be cooked on high for 3 to 4 hours.
