Slow Cooker Beans


500 grams dried cannellini beans, soaked then boiled as instructed
chopped garlic, as preferred
any herbs: oregano, thyme, or mixed
2 bay leaves


Soften the onion, garlic and carrot slowly in the oil. Try to avoid them colouring too much. Add the marinara sauce, tomatoes and herbs, bring to a simmer. Transfer to slow cooker and mix in the beans. Ensure all of the beans are submerged - if not, add a little extra water.
If you would like to eat these for breakfast, cook overnight. After I soaking my beans, I only boiled them for 30 mins, but I set my slow cooker to "high" for the rest of the cooking time. Use your judgement here!
