It's been about a year since I blogged from this cookbook. I just had a baby and had a week of people bringing over meals for us. So it's the perfect time for me to start up making recipes again. I don't know if I'll be able to get through the rest of the year, but I'll try.
I made this for dinner tonight. It is from the "veggie variety" section. I gathered up these ingredients at about 9am.
I sautéed some onions and carrots in olive oil.
I added some garlic, then transferred it to the crock pot. I poured on a can of broth, then added some chopped escarole, and put two cans of navy beans on top. I sprinkled a little red pepper flakes over it, covered, and cooked for 7 hours on low.
I stirred it up,
seasoned it with salt and Parmesan cheese, and served it:
I remember making this recipe last year and really liking it. I didn't like it as much this time. I'm guessing it's because I cooked it for a long time. The beans turned out really mushy. I think last time I didn't cook it as long, and it had a nice flavor. Next time I might try 5 or 6 hours instead of 7 or 8.
