Today I have a soup recipe for you, that’s so easy. Just throw everything together in your slow cooker before you leave for work. You can use all kinds of veggies in this Slow Cooker Yellow-Eyed Bean Soup.
Don’t have yellow eyed beans in your pantry? You can use black-eyed peas, pintos or another heirloom bean you’ve been saving.
I fell in love with yellow eyed beans the first time I tasted them. Prettier than black-eyed peas, they have a smoother texture too. They were traditionally used in baked beans, but are great in Southern favs, soups and stews.
In this crockpot soup, the sweet potatoes mix with the beans to create a rich broth that gets a hint of sweetness from the sweet potato. I love that it uses seasonal ingredients that you may already have on hand.
