Crock Pot White Beans

The crock pot is one of my favorite inventions of all times. What could be easier than putting ingredients into it, turning it on and walking away? I've never used mine so much as I have since the birth of my third child. It just makes my life easier. Once you figure out how simple it is to cook beans in it, you'll never buy canned again. If you're wondering why we eat navy beans as opposed to pinto, maybe you want to check out this article to see the full spectrum of health benefits and nutritional information! Beyond the fact that they are packed full of fiber and protein, they are also extremely tasty.

Crock Pot White Beans

  • 1 pound navy beans, rinsed and sorted
  • 9 cups homemade chicken stock (or water)
  • 2-3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon salt
Place all ingredients into your crock pot, put the lid on and cook on low for 8 hours. If you need them done sooner, cook on high for 2 hours and then switch to low for at least 2-3. I usually put them on in the morning and let them cook all day. Sometimes I even turn them on at night before bed so we have them the next day for lunch. Enjoy!
