How to make a soup in a crockpot? A simple vegetables and bean soup

I soaked my bean blend overnight then added two bell peppers, an onion, some chives and 3 cloves of pressed garlic. I added 7 cups of water- just enough to cover it and have it in the crockpot with salt and pepper.

Is this going to turn into soup or do I need to do more? (first time ever using a crockpot, or making soup.)

  • Yes it will however you might want to add some broth cubes so you have more flavor. Beef would be good.

  • just keep an eye on it. i usally stir it once an hour if it seems to thick, then i add more water. i rented about five books for the crockpots from the library.

  • I use a ham bone and chicken broth and canned tomatoes in place of most of the water.

  • No salt or acid (like tomatoes) before the beans are completely cooked!!!
