Baked White Beans
1 cup dried white beans (soaked 6-8 hours)
4-5 cloves garlic sliced
3-4 sprigs fresh thyme, or 1/4 teaspoon dried thyme
4 tablespoon Sweet Tasting Brown Rice Miso
1 inch piece kombu sea vegetable (optional)
On medium flame cook beans with kombu and 2 cups water for 45 minutes to one hour, adding more water as needed. When beans are soft stir in miso, garlic and thyme; there should still be some liquid in pot. Transfer to oven-safe casserole dish. Bake for 30 minutes at 350°.
