Bean stew in Crock-Pot slow cooker

I really like beans, that's why the first slowcooker dish was a bean stew.

  • 500 g beans
  • 2 large onions
  • 1 piece carrot
  • 1 piece of parsnips
  • 1 piece parsley
  • 1 piece of celery
  • 1 capsicum
  • 2-3 tablespoons tomato paste
  • 1 potato
  • salt
  • peppercorns
  • 50 ml oil
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 bay leaf
  • a small branch of dried thyme

Servings: 6

Preparation time: over 120 minutes

RECIPE PREPARATION Crock-Pot slowcooker bean stew:

I put the beans in cold water soaked from evening until morning.

I drained the beans and put a pot of water on the fire, about 2 l and, when the water started to boil, I also put the beans and let them boil for 10 minutes. Then I drained the water and put the beans in the bowl of the slow cooker.

I cut the onion, the roots, the capsicum and put them over the beans.

I added oil and water.

I put the lid on the pot and plugged the Crock-Pot slow cooker into the socket, set it to high and let it boil for 4 hours. I took the lid and added salt, peppercorns, bay leaf and thyme branch, as well as tomato paste. I mixed and put the lid on and let the pot boil for another hour. I got a bean delight.
