Right now I really want a KFC!! LOL. LOADS of Big pieces of fried chicken with a huge scoop of baked beans! But surely there is a raw alternative...
We already have the chicken taken care of with Alissa's BBQ Chicken, anyone have any ideas for the baked beans? What type of beans are used in cooked baked beans? What I'm thinking of is quite easy though, just sprout a load of mung beans (or is it aduki, I can't remember but they are a dark red, purple colour and a similar size to tinned baked beans) for a few days so their nice and soft and then mix them with Alissa's Tomato Sauce recipe, and they must surely look like baked beans, right!? Only problem is I've never tasted the Summer Tomato Sauce recipe so I don't know if it would be too strong.
Either way I'm gonna try it when I've ordered the nessessory raw spices and ingredients to make it all! And this meal would be a GREAT protien meal with the lentils and beans used!

I wondered if Up Leap 100 Billion tried making it the way she described.
I'm sure I've seen a baked bean recipe somewhere but I can't remember where!

Many beans are very toxic when sprouted. Be sure to research this.

I found a link here with a posted recipe for refried beans. Thanks to Rawkinlocs with her teaser pictureS too. Check out the link:
Here's the recipe she found online:
Two cups of raw sunflower seeds, soaked overnight, which then = about four cups. (I made this spur of the moment so I didn't soak, but I ground dry seeds in the coffee grinder and just added water to the mixture to desired consistency)
1/2 cup flax seed oil (didn't have any, so I used olive oil)
3 Tbls. of raw nut butter or tahini (I used a little of both)
1 tsp. sea salt
3 tsp. cumin (key ingredient, don't even try it without!)
2 tsp. chili powder
1 Tbls. raw apple cider vinegar
Throw it all in the food processer, adding a bit of water as you go along until it is all smooth.
The meal was very yummy and satisfying! Anyone who thinks that eating raw foods is about feeling deprived...think again!!
I see Alissa has one in her book per the message link above.
I also found one way back but not online with credit recognition below. They have a restaurant, do rawlucks and in AZ.
2 cups sprouted rye from
1 Red chili
2 teaspoons Mexican seasoning
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon cumin powder
1 teaspoon Celtic salt
Sunflower Refried Beans
4 cups soaked sunflower seeds (2 ½ cups before soaking)
½ cup flax oil, hemp oil, or olive oil
3 ½ tsp. onion powder
2 tsp. chili powder
2 ½ tsp. cumin powder
1 tsp. Celtic Sea Salt
1 Tbs. unpasteurized dark miso paste
3 Tbs. raw tahini
1 Tbs. apple cider vinegar
¾ cup pure water
Put all ingredients in a food processor and puree until creamy. Best served warmed in the dehydrator at 105 degrees.
(You can make "burritos" with lettuce as the shell and add some guacamole and salsa as well.)
- from Elaina Love, Pure Joy Living Foods
From Sad to Raw website Michelle has made this several times --her comments: I use olive oil, and don't have miso yet, so left out the miso and just put in 3 1/2 Tbl tahini - came out super!)
Found another refried bean that I had stashed away on my computer. Not sure who gets the credit except Utopiagirl:
pumpkin seeds, soaked 2 hours, blended with sun-dried tomatoes (in oil), fresh tomatoes, chili powder, cumin, cayenne and a little salt.
Eaten on a lettuce leaf with guacamole. Yum
Enjoy and let us know how it turned out. I think you will have lots of variety to share with others.

The idea of raw beans reallllly doesn't do anything for me. Cooked ones are great, but I don't think I could enjoy the difference between cooked and raw/soaked/sprouted. If you do happen to magically perfect a recipe, let me know, though! Until then, www.kfccruelty.com :D Juuuuust in case you feel like slipping, I hope this changes your mind. :)

Baked beans on toast might be just about possible. Juliano has a toast recipe in his book or dehydrated aubergine (eggplant) tastes like toast. It's possible to make ketchup, salsa, and barbecue sauce, so it should be possible to make the baked bean sauce. Then you're almost there, you just need to find something softish to replace the beans.

Why not just use sprouted garbanzos? To soften them I have been thinking about trying the ziploc in the dehydrator method that Rawkinlocks has mentioned before. Something to ponder or try immediately!! :p
