Welcome to this slow cooker/crockpot blog. I believe slow cookers are the best thing to happen to modern day cooks. I used mine often when I worked outside the home and continue to do so even in retirement. It is so nice to put food on and forget about it. Slow cookers also allow us to cook many things we would normally have to use the oven for; what a relief in hot Texas weather! Some of these recipes are mine, many are ones I have collected over the years.

 Red Beans & Rice Soup
A healthy vegetarian soup loaded with beans, veggies and brown rice--just combine all the ingredients in your crock pot and top with green onions and tomatoes.
Servings: 6

2× 15 oz cans Small Red Beans, rinsed and drained well
¾ cup Brown Rice
1 Medium Onion, finely diced
1 stalk Celery, finely chopped
1 tsp Black Pepper
½ tsp Salt
1 tsp Ground Cumin
6 cups Low Fat Low Sodium Vegetable Broth
3-4 Green Onions, chopped
1 Medium Tomato, chopped and drained

Mash one can of beans with a fork and combine all ingredients, except the green onions and tomato, into a crock pot. Cover, cook on low for 5-6 hours, or until the rice is tender. Ladle into bowls and sprinkle with green onions and chopped tomato.
