My Food Diary, Just Saying

Dried Beans in Slow Cooker

I used

1/2 cup red kidney beans

1/2 cup great northern beans

I washed them, added fresh water and soaked them for about 3-4 hours.

Chopped up

6 green onions

1 small yellow onion

1 bell pepper

2 stalks celery

Placed beans in slow cooker with fresh water, to cover the beans

Added 1 T. diced garlic, black pepper, and dried parsley.

I turned the slow cooker on as I went to bed, on low, cooked through the night.

I woke up around 5 AM, the beans were done.  I added no oil or grease of any kind.

Easy for elderly to prepare, convenient, don’t have to stand over it and watch it all day. Easy for person with health problems that limits activity in kitchen. No cholesterol.
