Easy Portuguese-Style Bean Soup
Total TimePrep: 30 min. Cook: 7 hours

Disappointed in the directions for this recipe. It says that it makes 4.5 quarts of soup, but it was actually much closer to 8 quarts. After 7 hours in my slowcooker, the thinly sliced carrots were still almost as crunchy as when I put them in. If I made this again I would sauté the onion and celery, etc. as if for a stovetop soup as my first step and then throw them in the pot. Flavors are enjoyable, but I would omit the salt other than to taste at the end, as depending on your sausage and broth you may have a lot of salt already. I would also add a touch of cayenne at the end.
