 Ingredients List

  • 1 lb Beans, assorted, dry
  • 2 c Vegetable juice
  • 1/2 c Dry white wine
  • 1/3 c Soy sauce
  • 1/3 c Apple or pineapple juice
  • -vegetable stock or water
  • 1/2 c Celery diced
  • 1/2 c Parsnips diced
  • 1/2 c Carrots diced
  • 1/2 c Mushrooms diced
  • 1 Onion diced
  • 1 ts Basil, dried
  • 1 ts Parsley, dried
  • 1 Bay leaf
  • 3 Clove garlic minced
  • 1 ts Black pepper ground
  • 1 c Rice or pasta cooked


Sort and rinse beans, then soak overnight in water. Drain beans and place
in crockpot. Add vegetable juice, wine, soy sauce, and apple or pineapple
juice. Cover with vegetable stock or water; the amount added depends on
whether you prefer a soup (more liquid) or a stew (less). The juice adds
just a tad of sweetness and the soy sauce adds depth and the tang of salt.
Cook at high for 2 hours. Add vegetables, herbs, and spices, and cook for
5-6 hours at low until carrots and parsnips are tender. When tender, add
rice or pasta and cook for one additional hour. Notes: For beans use 3 or 4
kinds, such as: black, red kidney, pinto, baby lima, lentil, and green
and/or yellow split peas.
