Beans, Beans, Beans...

Great-Grandmother's 3 Bean Casserole

1 can of lima beans
1 can of baked beans
1 can of kidney beans
1 large onion
1 pepper (any color)
1 clove of garlic
1/2 c. of brown sugar
1 ts. dry mustard (or 1 T. of wet mustard)
1 tsp. salt
1/2 c. ketchup
1/4 vinegar

Saute onion and chopped pepper. Place all ingredients into an oven proof crock or casserole dish. Cook at 350 degrees for 90 minutes. Let cool for 30 minutes so the sauce can thicken.

Note: After sauteeing the onion and pepper, I combined the ingredients into the crock pot and cooked the beans on high for 1 hour. They came out perfectly and were done in less time than using the oven!

Black Bean Vegetable Soup

1T. vegetable oil
1 onion, chopped
1 clove of garlic, minced
2 carrots, chopped
2 tsp. chili powder
1 tsp. ground cumin
4 c. vegetable stock
1 (15 oz) cans of black beans, rinsed and drained
1 (8.75oz) can corn
1/4 tsp. black pepper
1 (14.5 oz.) can diced tomatoes

In a large saucepan, heat oil over medium heat. Cook onion, garlic, and carrots, stirring occasionally for 5 minutes or until onion is softened. Add chili powder and cumin. Cook for one minute stirring. Add stock, beans, corn, and pepper and bring to a boil. Add tomatoes to the pot. Reduce heat, cover, and simmer for 15 to 20 minutes or until carrots are tender.
