Spicy Baked Soybeans
1 1/2 cups dried soybeans
1 medium onion, diced
1/2 cup each soy sauce, molasses, and chili sauce or tomato sauce
2 slices fresh ginger (optional)
2 1/2 cups boiling water
1/2 teaspoon salt
Put soybeans into a 4-quart pot, pour in about 3 quarts of cold water, and
let beans soak overnignt. The next day, drain and rinse the beans,
discarding the soaking liquid.
Preheat oven to 300 degrees F
Put onion in bottom of bean pot or heavy casserole with a lid. Add beans,
soy sauce, molasses, tomato or chili sauce, and ginger. Pour the boiling
water over all.
Bake, covered, for 4 hours or until tender. Remove lid, stir in the salt and
pepper to your taste, and bake 30 minutes longer. Add a little more water if
beans seem dry.
Can be made ahead and refrigerated or frozen. May need to add water when
(Like all bean recipes, this is pretty flexible; can be adapted by
precooking beans in microwave or pressure cooker, and flavorings can be
changed to your taste)
