Crockpot: Savory Bean and Spinach Soup

17 Nov

This is not a recipe I have tried yet but it is one I have wanted to try, so hopefully on our next shopping trip I will remember to buy the ingredients needed for this.   Today is, however, the Nourishing Crockpot Carnival over at Passionate Homemaking and I wanted to contribute!

Passionate Homemaking is one of my favorite blogs, I have learned a great deal about natural and healthy living from Lindsay, the author of the blog.  I appreciate her dedication and all the hard work she pours into her writing.   I highly recommend checking out her blog if you haven’t already.

Anyway, here’s the recipe!


  • 3 14 oz. cans vegetable broth
  • 1 15-oz can small white beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1 15 oz can tomato puree
  • ½ cup uncooked brown rice
  • ½ cup finely chopped onion
  • 1 tsp dried basil
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • ¼ tsp black pepper
  • 2 garlic cloves, chopped
  • 8 cups chopped fresh spinach or kale leaves


1.    In a 3 ½ or 4 quart slow cooker, combine all but the spinach or kale
2.    Cook on low for 5-7 hours or high 2 ½ – 3 ½ hours.
3.    Just before serving, stir in spinach or kale.

Yields: 6 Servings
