Directions

  2. In a 4-quart slow cooker combine beans, vegetable stock, pumpkin, onion, cumin, oregano, chili powder, and salt.
  3. Cover and cook on low-heat setting for 11 to 12 hours or on high-heat setting for 5 1/2 to 6 hours. If using low-heat setting, turn to high-heat setting. Stir in kale, tomatoes, edamame, and hot sauce. Cover and cook on high-heat setting for 30 minutes more. Makes 6 servings.

I loved this recipe. The pumpkin brings a nice creamy texture, and the multiple types of beans are a nice change.

Good news...Kale is actually not THAT good for you. Eight leafy greens, including watercress and Romaine lettuce, score much higher in nutritional value. So, feel free to replace kale in this recipe with something better, such as chard, beet greens, or spinach. Bon appetit!

Tasty - it was a good soup to throw together in the morning before work and come home to (almost) ready dinner.

This was delicious - I really enjoy the spice that the hot sauce gives it. With all the other seasonings, I thought it was very flavorful. Great ingredients for a very healthful meal.

This soup smelled really good but, the taste was very bland. Very disappointing. As well the amount it says it will make is off. It makes much more!
