I'm dropping by for a quick and easy crockpot recipe! We have snow-less snow days and my little one is home with me. It is chilly here and we were really looking forward to playing in the snow together. Big disappointment!
Hearty 15 bean soup made from scratch is the perfect home cooked meal for an icy, messy day. Our weather here is so ugly. My husband is stuck out in the cold so I made sure he came home to a healthy, warm dinner. You can find the dried beans at the store. Some label them as 15 or 16 bean soup. I throw out the ham flavor packet and just season myself.
I soaked my beans overnight. I then rinsed them this morning, put them in my crockpot, covered them with 8 cups of water (or you can use organic broth), added 6 diced tomatoes and their juices, one smoked turkey sausage, one cup of diced ham (we had some frozen from a hog we had slaughtered), and one pound of ground venison (you can use turkey) with one diced onion. Cook on low all day in the crockpot! You can add some salt, garlic powder and sage for flavor too!
