Greek Bean Soup ( Fasolia Yachni )

Last night, we had a children's party to go to at Church, and we were all going to be getting in late. I didn't want to have to start cooking when we got home, and I also didn't have much time to prepare something before we left.

So, I put this in the Slow Cooker before we left, and when we came home four hours later - it was delicious!

Greek Bean Soup in the Slow Cooker (Fasolia Yachni)

1 12oz bag frozen mirepoix mix, thawed in a sieve under warm, running water*
4 cups "Yachni" sauce
3 15oz cans Great Northern Beans, WITH their liquid
Water (1 or 2 cups - to the right thick-soup consistency)

Cook on high for 4 hours, or on low 8 hours. (This could also be made on the stove top - cooking for 45 minutes to an hour)

That's it!

Serve with a nice, crusty bread and salad.

* If you prefer, you can use 1/2 cup sliced carrots, 1/2 cup sliced celery & 1/2 cup chopped onion

Tip for dining with omnivores: This is a hearty vegan dish - a meal in itself. But, many omnivores really want some non-vegan food on the table, no matter how hearty the meal. If  that is the case in your house, a nice addition to this meal would be a plate of cheese, crackers, and summer sausage slices.

  1. I didn't know what mirepoix was, so I'm glad you included an alternative!

  2. I didn't know till recently either, when I found it at the grocery store! It's just a fancy word for a mix of pre-chopped onions, carrots & celery : )

    I get it at Kroger - near the frozen chopped onions.

    It costs a tiny bit more than doing your own, but saves some time in the kitchen.
