DIRECTIONS

  • Rinse beans and then soak overnight in water.
  • Drain beans and place in crock pot.
  • Add vegetable juice, wine, soy sauce, and apple or pineapple juice.
  • Cover with vegetable stock or water; the amount added depends on whether you prefer a soup (more liquid) or a stew (less).
  • The juice adds just a tad of sweetness and the soy sauce adds depth and the tang of salt.
  • Cook on high for 2 hours.
  • Add vegetables, herbs, and spices, and cook for 5 to 6 hours on low until carrots and parsnips are tender.
  • When tender, add rice or pasta and cook for one additional hour on low.
  • For beans use 3 or 4 kinds, such as black, red kidney, pinto, baby lima, lentil, and green and/or yellow split peas.
