- 1 bag (16-ounces) dried beans, such as kidney, split peas, navy, black or mixed
- 1 can cream of celery soup (can use low fat)
- 2 vegetable flavored bouillon cubes
- 2 quarts water
- 1 smoked ham hock
- 1-1/2 teaspoons onion powder
- 1 teaspoon celery seed
- 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
The night before serving, heat water and add soup, bouillon and seasoning; mix well. Place beans in crock pot, and add water mixture, then ham hock. Cover and cook on Low overnight. It will be ready for lunch the following day. Just before serving, remove ham hock, and discard fat and bones; chop meat into somewhat small pieces, and return to mixture. Serve. Refrigerate leftovers, or freeze for later. It is always thicker and better the days after that! Enjoy!
