Vegan Slow Cooked Beans

by Jill Dalton

Beans, one of the most beneficial things you can eat on a plant based diet. They are full of phytonutrients, antioxidants, and vitamins and minerals like magnesium, potassium, iron and zinc. More than that they are loaded with protein and fiber which is so very important in a nutritarian diet! Beans are also great for your budget! Just one 1lb bag of dry beans can feed one person for quite a few meals. My preference of course is Rancho Gordo beans. Their taste and quality is far superior to the store bought beans.

Trust me, if you take the time to slow cook beans you will not be disappointed. Eat up and enjoy! Toot toot =)

What kind of bean did you use?

I think Rancho Gordo is a trade name not a bean, right?

Are the beans the “Domingo Rojo” flavor of the Rancho Gordo beans?

Hey Jill, You don’t need to post this, but I recently learned that red beans (kidney) and maybe other beans need to be boiled on the stove for 10 minutes to kill a toxin Phytohaemagglutinin.before putting in crockpot. Reportedly, the new crockpots don’t get hot enough to kill the toxin. I first saw this on Kathy Hester’s crockpot site, then when googling many others came up!
