User Rating 5 Star Rating (2 Reviews)


Neil's 16 Bean Soup
This bean soup is a great tasting soup for the slow cooker, made hearty with sausage and vegetables. Serve with cornbread or biscuits for a satisfying dinner.


  • 1 package 16 Bean Soup
  • 3 bay leaves
  • 1 tablespoon crushed oregano
  • 2 cans no-fat chicken stock
  • Additional water to cover
  • 3 stalks celery chopped
  • 3 carrots diced
  • 1 large onion chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic sliced
  • 1 pound turkey Italian sausage sliced
  • 2 cans stewed (or diced) tomatoes


Combine first 5 ingredients (liquid should cover mixture 1 to 2 inches) in slow cooker. Cover and cook on HIGH for 3 hours, or until beans are tender. Add remaining ingredients and decrease temperature to low; cook for additional 3 to 4 hours. If desired, add cayenne or crushed red pepper when adding second set of ingredients. Serve as complete meal or over rice. Freezes well.

Great New Years Dish, Member tao_rider

Awesome recipe! Browned the sausage in a touch of olive oil for looks and texture. Froze several baggies worth, looking forward to enjoying it over the next few months. mike
