Crockpot Great Northern Beans

What you need: 

1 pound great Northern beans (or any white bean)
1 onion, chopped
2 carrots, chopped
2 ribs celery, chopped
4 cloves garlic, chopped
2 heaping tablespoons vegetable bouillon seasoning (I use Morga)
1 bay leaf
1/4 cup olive oil
1-2 tablespoons vegan butter
salt and pepper, to taste

What you do: 

1. Night before: Sort, wash and cover beans with water to soak. I like to chop all the vegetables and store them in the fridge until morning. In the morning: Rinse beans.
2. Add to crockpot with veggies, bay leaf, vegetable seasoning, butter and olive oil. Cover with about 1" water.
3. Turn crockpot on low and cook all day. You might find that you need to add a little more water toward the end of the cooking process, so if you can’t get home during the day to check, you might want to add a little more water in the beginning.
4. Just before serving, take out about 1 cup beans and puree in a food processor and stir back into crockpot. This process will help thicken the soup. Salt and pepper to taste and enjoy!

SO HOW'D IT GO?

Absolutely delicious!! I cooked it all day (about 10.5 hours) and when I got home, there was a lot of liquid in the pot, so I drained a good bit of it out. Then, I pureed about half of it with a stick blender. This gave it a really good consistency. I served it with Quick and Easy Yeast-Free Oatmeal Whole Wheat Bread and some steamed kale. It was fantastic and I think next time, I might add some liquid smoke to the crockpot to see if it adds something. Great easy recipe - THANKS!!

Insanely tasty, especially considering how easy to make it is.

;)b Excellent - This was great.  It reminded me of my childhood when my mother would make beans on a cold Montana day.  I followed the recipe as it was written with the following exceptions: I added a head of cabbage, a can of tomatoes, 1/4 tsp of nut meg, 1 tbsp of dried parsley, 1 cup of cubed portobello mushrooms and about 1/4 tsp of Liquid Smoke (which you can get in the condiment section of any grocery store).  It was fantastic.  Be careful with the liquid smoke because it can overpower if you use too much, but it will give the recipe a little of that smoked pork flavor common with this type of soup.  I even like to add a little Tabasco Sauce to mine when I dish it up (I did not add it as a main ingredient since not everyone in the family agrees), or, just a little vinegar if you don't have the Tabasco Sauce will kick it up a notch if you like that sort of thing.

I even had some for breakfast the next morning.  My wife, who normally does not like beans really liked this.  Even some of my really persnickety children devoured them.  You just have to give this a try.  It's great!!!

This was amazing!  I used twice the garlic and carrots, and left out the celery and decreased the onion.  I also added a bit more of the veggie broth seasoning ( mine has like..no sodium).  When it was finished, my husband and I topped it with onion powder, salt and pepper.  We also stirred in a healthy amount of nutritional yeast.  We had some whole wheat rosemary bread I made that was a little on the stale side, and we chopped it up and put it in our bowl to soak up all the juices.. and it tasted awesome.  I think next time, I will decrease the oil though...mine tasted a but oily.  ;)b

This was pretty good.  The only addition I made was some macaroni pasta.  It turned out to be a delicious, easy, cheap meal. Thanks!
