  1. Preparation : This is a wonderful recipe that I got from a cookbook called Lean Luscious and meatless. It takes a little bit of time to prepare but is well worth the effort. It is the best baked beans I have ever had. You can substitute baby limas for the navy beans. I have changed a few things from the original recipe to suit my own taste so feel free to add any of your favorite seasonings. Rinse and drain beans. Place in a large bowl with remaining ingredients except tomato sauce. Mix well cover and place in the refrigerator for 24 hours. TO COOK: Transfer bean mixture to a large oven proof pot. Add tomato sauce. Bring to a boil over medium heat. Reduce heat to low, cover and simmer 45 min stirring occasionally. Preheat oven to 300 degrees. Place pot in oven. bake 4 hours covered. Check beans every half hour or so adding water and stirring as needed. When beans are done to your likeness remove from oven and serve.
