1 pound great Northern beans (or any white bean)
1 onion, chopped
2 carrots, chopped
2 ribs celery, chopped
4 cloves garlic, chopped
2 heaping tablespoons vegetable bouillon seasoning (I use Morga)
1 bay leaf
1/4 cup olive oil
1-2 tablespoons vegan butter
salt and pepper, to taste
1. Night before: Sort, wash and cover beans with water to soak. I like to chop all the vegetables and store them in the fridge until morning. In the morning: Rinse beans.
2. Add to crockpot with veggies, bay leaf, vegetable seasoning, butter and olive oil. Cover with about 1" water.
3. Turn crockpot on low and cook all day. You might find that you need to add a little more water toward the end of the cooking process, so if you can’t get home during the day to check, you might want to add a little more water in the beginning.
4. Just before serving, take out about 1 cup beans and puree in a food processor and stir back into crockpot. This process will help thicken the soup. Salt and pepper to taste and enjoy!
