    Katzen's Note:

    From Fresh from the Vegetarian Slow Cooker, this recipe is a guideline to slow cook basic dried beans such as pintos, kidneys, white beans, and black eyed peas. If you wish to flavour the beans, add the onion, garlic, and bay leaves, else leave them as is; just cook them in water and you will have beans that are ready to use in any recipe calling for cooked beans. Cook time does not include the overnight soak.

      I've been using this recipe for over 4 years now and it's wonderful. My husband has been a heart patient for that long now and as he can literally eat beans every day I needed to change my old cooking habits with included an entire pound of bacon in each pot of beans. I include two additions to this basic recipe; 1 teaspoon of crushed red pepper flakes and a heaping tablespoon of ground cumin. When you remove fat from a recipe you need to seriously increase the spices to compensate. We now prefer this recipe over the old one with bacon. I soak the beans in the crockpot over night then drain, rinse and add the ingredients in the morning. I cook them on high and let them cook down until thick and creamy. I do add a couple of teaspoons of salt after they have finished cooking. Enjoy!

      I will never buy canned beans again-this was so easy and delicious! I made it with chickpeas and will try it with other beans soon. I made this for Best of 2010 Cookbook Tag. Thanks for a new family favorite!

      I did this with pinto beans, and they turned out great! So easy to do while you're at work. I added the onions, and threw in a slice of bacon. Enjoyed with cornbread. Thanks for sharing! Made for PRMR tag.
