  • 5 ounces sun-dried tomatoes drained
  • 6 ounces baby spinach
  • 1 teaspoon red pepper flakes more to taste

  • Place the dry beans into a colander and rinse thoroughly with cold water. Check for any small stones or debris and discard.
  • Add the beans, onion, garlic, and chicken broth to a large slow cooker. Cover and cook on high for 4 hours or until beans are tender.

  • Cover and cook on low for 1 hour.
  • Stir well before serving. Serve with shaved Parmesan on top, as desired.



This recipe originally called for 1 tablespoon of red pepper flakes, but we received quite a few reviews that people found it too spicy. I've reduced the red pepper flakes to 1 teaspoon, but feel free to add to taste.
