Slow Cooker 15 Bean Soup with Polish Kielbasa

This is adapted from my non slow cooker recipe. Since the beans are not soaked it is cooked differently due to the beans rehydrating while cooking. I use Hurst 15 bean soup. You can also add swiss chard or spinach if you wish.

    tablespoons lemon juice

  • 1

    15 ounce can whole tomatoes, crushed or diced tomatoes

Directions

No need to soak beans. Saute onion, and celery in olive oil until tender. Add garlic and sauté 2 minutes more. Add all ingredients EXCEPT tomatoes and lemon juice. Cover with water (about 2 inches over top of beans). Turn slow cooker to high and cook 5 hours or until beans are tender but not falling apart. Add lemon juice, tomatoes with the juice. Taste for salt. I usually don't add any. Mix well. Slow cook on high for one hour. Season to taste. 404 calories per 1-1/2 cup serving.
