Slow cooker bean stew

This stew was easy, cheap and very nutritious.

I used homemade vegetable stock. I save vegetable clippings in a plastic freezer bag. When the bag is full, I cook it on low for 10 hours in the crockpot.


To make this soup:

  • Strain the vegetable broth and dispose of the clippings.  
  • Add a handful of beans. I used a handful of blackbeans and a handful of navy beans
  • Add meat. I used a cup of cut leftover ham
  • Add vegetables. I used a cup of chopped carrots, a cup of chopped celery, a cup of chopped parsnip
  • Add salt, pepper and chopped garlic to taste
  • Simmer on low for 8-10 hours

Delicious! Enjoy with homemade croutons.
