Crockpot Bean Stew is a delicious Vegetarian Slow Cooker recipe and an easy freezer meal! This recipe is perfect for the cool Fall or Winter weather. You can make this recipe ahead of time and freeze until ready to use. Just add all ingredients except chicken broth into ziploc bag. When ready to make just thaw overnight in fridge. Then in morning add to crockpot with chicken broth.
This recipe is also naturally gluten free which I love. I like to prepare it with Gluten Free Cornbread.
Be sure that you invest in a good quality slow cooker. Our favorite is this programmable cook and carry 6qt oval slow cooker.
