Guess What Goes Well with White Beans

White beans are great cooked in traditional recipes, but when “These are good!” was my husband’s assessment of this latest take on dried beans my thought was, "Can there be better words to hear when you make a new dish?" Needless to say, I was pleased with his response to my Harvest White Beans recipe!

This white beans recipe contains both navy and great northern beans that are cooked in chicken broth. A few seasonings go in for the duration of cooking in the Crock Pot, but the Harvest Corn Soup goes in for only the last hour.

Served with my cornbread baked with a tablespoon of ground flax seed (something my husband approved when I made my Pot of Gold Beans), this White Beans with Harvest Corn Soup recipe is another home run on the home front.


Good for You Ingredients go in my Harvest White Beans recipe!

      Thanks kindly, both for your visit and comments! I know what you mean about using canned beans, but I've found that the taste is worth the soaking and it's not that much trouble after all. Hope you get to try it sometime soon! :)

      That soup looks delicious! I must admit, I usually use canned beans as I'm never organized enough to get my beans soaking overnight!

      So glad you like the looks of this recipe. Yes, the bacon adds good flavor, but it's got to be quality, all natural or we don't use it. I'm thankful we can obtain locally grown--not everyone can.

      Thanks much for stopping by with your input!

      RT: That looks good. Simple to make and healthy too. I like to put a cup of barley in beans... you've added brown rice.. If you have not tried the barley I would ... it gives the beans a silky smoothness... that I enjoy... Either way... looks great!
