Harvest Time Slow Cooker Navy Bean Soup – Lori Ann's Food and Fam

Harvest Time Slow Cooker Navy Bean Soup

It’s Bean harvest time of the year again around my little town.   There’s a little extra hustle and bustle in the neighborhood.  Trucks, Combines and Farmers are coming out of fields all over the place….

It put me in the mood for a taste of the season so I threw in a  batch of belly fillin’- stick to your ribs bean harvest soup.

   I recruited my Daughter’s carrot peeling skills and away she went.

 

My 12 year old.
WAY better with a peeler that I am.
Seriously.

 

The best part about this recipe is that you don’t need to soak the dry beans before you cook them. Oh, and of course, it’s made in a slow cooker, so it’s super easy.
