Italian Style Crock Pot Beans

I have been working with my mom to come up with some healthy ways to get protein without soy or meat products.  This is quite a challenge as we also had to exclude green leafy vegetables and broccoli.

Italian Style Crock Pot Beans

I came up with this fabulous bean dish made with incredible Italian flavors (I adapted hers to use vegetable bouillon and no salt which made it vegetarian and perfect).  Italian Style Crock Pot Beans would be incredible served with quinoa and your favorite vegetable!  This dish is so good I had 2 bowls of it for dinner.  Nothing else.  Perfectly simple and you can make 1/2 recipe too!

    1. You could use canned beans, but I would not cook it for 5-8 hours, maybe just until warmed through. Enjoy and let us know how it goes.
