White Bean Soup – crock pot style!

February 12, 2010

White Bean Soup

This recipe is ideal for crock pottery and will serve 8-12

2 cups dried white beans
1 large white onion
1 green pepper
3 carrots
3 stalks of celery
1 Tbs cumin
1 Tbs salt
1 tsp pepper
1 bay leaf
1/4 cup sofrito
8 cups of water or stock

To prepare white beans: Rinse thoroughly in cold water. Place in a pot with 6 cups of cold water. Cover and let rest for 8 hours. Or bring to a rapid boil and cook for 2 minutes. Remove from heat and let sit for an hour. Drain and rinse again.

Chop onion, carrot, pepper and celery. Place veggies in crock pot with beans, cumin, bay leaf, salt and pepper. Mix together. Add 8 cups of water. Mix a second time. Turn crock pot on high for 6 -8 hours. When beans are soft, the soup is done. Remove bay leaf. Use an immersion blender to create your desired thickness. And for the garlicky kick, add in sofrito prior to serving.
