I know some of you have been missing the slow cooker recipes, and I have one of the simplest recipes for you today. My Slow Cooker Mother Stallard Beans even has a stove-top variation.
This recipe is from my The Great Vegan Bean Book and perfect for a lazy day at home or it will cook while you are at work.
What are Mother Stallard Beans? They are beautiful football shaped heirloom beans that make a brilliant broth. That’s why this recipe has so few ingredients, the beans really are the stars.
These beans aren’t always available, but you can substitute you favorite bean or a new-to-you heirloom bean.
You can make it in the slow cooker or on the stovetop. Leftovers are great over rice or quinoa.
