If you wish to prepare a smaller batch of soup, cut the recipe in half.

We like to start our great northern bean soup with carrots and onions the evening before we want to eat it.  We begin by turning on our 6-1/2 quart slow cooker on to "high", and boiling 10 cups of water in a pot on the stovetop or in our microwave oven.

While the water is heating, we clean and wash the beans, and place them in the slow cooker pot.

When the water boils, we add it to the slow cooker pot, along with the bay leaves, and mix everything together, cover the pot and turn the heat down to "low", and allow the beans to slowly cook until morning.

In the morning, turn the slow cooker up to "high", and wash, peel, and dice the onions and carrots and add to the slow cooker.  Open the can of crushed tomatoes and add to the slow cooker, and thoroughly mix everything together, and recover the pot.  If you wish to decrease the cooking time, the carrots, onions and carrots can be preheated.

When the soup once again begins to boil, turn the heat down to "low" and allow the soup to simmer until you are ready to eat. 

We like our bean soups thick, but if the soup is thicker than you desire, add some additional boiling water and remix.

Serve with a large tossed salad and enjoy!

The above recipe is in keeping with God's creation intent (Genesis 1:29-31):  'Then God said, "I give you every seed-bearing plant on the face of the whole earth and every tree that has fruit with seed in it. They will be yours for food.  And to all the beasts of the earth and all the birds of the air and all the creatures that move on the ground-- everything that has the breath of life in it-- I give every green plant for food." And it was so.   God saw all that he had made, and it was very good.' (NIV)  Let no animal suffer or die that we may live!
