Keep It Simple – Slow Cooker Cajun Bean Soup Recipe

Slow Cooker Cajun Bean Soup

I couldn’t live without my slow cooker.

I know that statement is a bit dramatic, but there is a grain of truth to it. I’ve had my slow cooker for 15 years and it’s a bit grungy on the outside, but I consider this testimony to its usefulness.

Bean Soup in the Slow Cooker

The fact that I can throw almost anything in the kitchen into the pot, set it to low and walk away for the day make’s life infinitely easier. Especially when the pantry is looking a bit bare. And if I’m not in a creative mood, I can find an abundance of slow cooker recipes with a quick Google search.

Soaking White Beans

This week it was time for a simple bean soup. I soaked a bag of white beans the night before (a very simple task, by the way, and sodium free), tossed them into the bath with a few peppers, onions and some spicy Cajun seasoning. Then I set the works on low and headed off to the day job.

Cajun Bean Soup

There’s nothing better than walking in the door and having dinner ready to go. The smell that wafts from the kitchen is mouthwatering and all you have to do is sit down and eat.

Ha! Can you see what’s missing from my soup? It seems I forgot to add the cheese! Oh well, apparently it was good without it.

Happy cooking!

Cajun White Bean Soup

Serves 10

Heat coconut oil in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add peppers and onion. Cook for 10 minutes until tender. Dump into a slow cooker with the remaining ingredients, except for cheese and sour cream. Cook on high for 6 – 8 hours, dependent on how hot your slow cooker gets. Mine cooked for 8 hours.

Add water if needed if the broth gets too thin. You want a thick soup consistency. When beans are cooked down, mash lightly with a potato masher and stir.

Top with cheese and sour cream.
