Easy Delicious Beans and Greens Soup (Crockpot)

Easy Delicious Beans and Greens Soup (Crockpot)

This soup is EASY and delicious – and NUTRITIOUS too! I’ve been working like crazy on some secret projects AND I just launched my first diet/meal plan program… working long hours but loving every minute! 2 of my kids are sick, and of course, it finally caught up with me. I have to remind myself that I am human, and I need to take care of myself too!

So I am going to whip up a batch of this healthy and delicious soup to help me heal, and soothe my soul. My mama always said, feed a fever, starve a cold!

Dust off that crockpot and get ready for some healthy goodness:

  • In a crockpot add:
    • 1 cup dried cannellini beans (rinsed)
    • 4 cups organic sow sodium chicken broth
    • 8 cups water
    • 5 cloves of garlic (minced)
    • 1 vidalia onion chopped
    • 2 organic carrots chopped (optional)
    • 1/2 teaspoon of each sea salt and fresh black pepper
    • 1 teaspoon turmeric
    • 1 tsp honey* (optional)
    • Stir together and cook on low for 6 – 8 hours
  • Then when you’re almost ready for dinner stir in:
    • 3 cups of chopped greens and keep covered for 15 – 30 minutes – I like escarole, spinach, chard, and mustard greens.
    • 1 pinch of red pepper flakes or cayenne pepper (if you like a little heat)

Enjoy it at night or for lunch with a slice of whole grain GF toast. You could even add a little parmesan cheese or grilled organic chicken sausage for a more filling meal!

*the honey is added so that the soup is not too bitter – add if you do not add carrots.


Love & yum,
