Prep Time
12 hr
Ingredients
  1. 1 lb dry beans soaked overnight (any bean or legume: black, pinto, aduki, lentils, etc.)
  2. 1 small yellow onion, chopped
  3. 1 medium green pepper, cored & chopped
  4. 6-7 cloves garlic, chopped/minced
  5. 1/4 cup avocado oil
  6. 1/2 tsp cumin
  7. Sea Salt to taste
  8. Dash black pepper
  9. 1 potato, chopped – russet or sweet potato (not yam) - ALL BEANS EXCEPT BLACK
  10. 8 oz crushed tomatoes (I like Pomi Tomatoes) - ALL BEANS EXCEPT BLACK
  11. 1 tbsp apple cider vinegar - BLACK BEANS ONLY
  12. (Optional) Avocado, cilantro, or parsley for garnish
Instructions
  1. Soak beans in filtered water overnight (~12 hr). Water should be filled at least 3 inches above beans (this is an important step to improve digestibility of beans – do not skip).
  2. Rinse beans thoroughly and set aside.
  3. Sauté onion in avocado oil until translucent.
  4. Add bell pepper, garlic, cumin, and pepper. Sauté until peppers are tender.
  5. Add beans to crockpot. Add filtered water until beans are completely covered.
  6. Add sea salt, stir, then dip in finger to taste (should taste mildly salty)
  7. Add seasoned onion/pepper mix and (for all beans except black beans) chopped potatoes and tomatoes to crockpot.
Black beans only
  1. Add 1 tbsp apple cider vinegar
Cook in Crockpot
  1. Cook on low for 10 to 12 hours, or on high 4 to 6 hours
  2. Beans should be soft. If too watery you can throw in a pan and cook off some of the liquid.
To Serve
  1. On bed of brown rice and/or with roasted vegetables and a side salad.
Notes
  1. This makes a large enough batch to freeze beans in glass mason jars for future meals.
  2. Use 16 oz. glass canning jars.
  3. Do not fill to the top, allow some space to keep jar from cracking.
  4. Allow to cool completely before freezing.
