Sunday is a great day for a slow-cooker meal, especially a coooolllld one. This soup looked gooood to me, so I thought I'd share this yummy recipe.
Hearty Ham and Bean Soup
3 cup parsnips, peeled and diced
2 cup carrots, peeled and diced
1 cup onion, chopped
1 1/2 cup dried Great Northern Beans
5 cups of water
1 1/2 lbs of smoked ham hocks (I always think of Paula Deen when I see ham hocks!)
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1/4 teaspoon hot pepper sauce
Place parsnips, carrots and onion in a slow cooker; top with beans. Add remaining ingredients. Cook on high setting for 6-7 hours, or until beans are tender. Remove ham hocks; cut meat into bite-size pieces and discard bones. Return meat to slow cooker; heat through.
