Hot hot hot today in beautiful Florida, so I made beans in my trusty crockpot. Then I made low fat, sugar free Carrot applesauce bars with a fat free cream cheese frosting but I need to work on the recipe so stay tuned...and then I was on a roll!! so I made a frittata for brunch and a roasted chicken for tomorrow...so much for not turning on the oven but it was OK.... I live to sweat...
It seems I do most of my cooking on the weekends now, it's so fun to play and cook and chat with hubby. Only went outside for a moment..it was so muggy!! but I had to get a shot of these cute visitors
Add a 1-2 cups more water- just enough to make the beans float and everything move around and cook until very tender. Season to taste and Voila!!! You did it!!
Skinny GF Crockpot Beans and Hamhocks
5 cups of Gluten Free Chicken Stock- I boil a whole chicken, reserve the broth, cool and remove fat
2 pounds dried beans- I used 1/2 pinto and 1/2 small white beans but you can use any combination
1 crushed clove of garlic,
1 diced onion,
6 peeled and chopped carrots,
4 stalks of celery chopped
Salt and Pepper to taste
Cook on high in large Crockpot for 6 hours or until very tender. Enjoy!!
