Hi all. I know I've touted this recipe before, but I just wanted to post it again for all our newbies. This is my absolute favorite way to have beans. I don't know what it is about it, but I find it SO yummy. :) I like that you don't have to soak the beans overnight. Gotta love the crockpot!

Crockpot Mixed Beans and Turkey Ham

Serving Size : 6

2 cans fat-free chicken broth
1 1/2 tablespoons parsley flakes

1/2 teaspoon baking soda
salt and pepper -- to taste, after beans are cooked

In a crockpot, throw beans in and enough water to cover (should have a clearing of 2" over the top of beans.)

Add remaining ingredients and cook 2-3 more hours till done.
