Slow Cooker Cream of Navy Bean Soup

I’m excited to bring back Vintage Slow Cooker Recipe of the month. If this is your first time here for the vintage recipe of the month, you’ll be seeing a vintage recipe I’ve found to try in my slow cooker. I don’t use that older crock pot above, I use my favorite newer 6-quart crock pot. Though I have had many people tell me that the above model works fine still. My lid broke on my vintage crock pot, sadly.

This month’s recipe for Cream of Navy Bean Soup, I found in this book below called The Modern Family Cookbook. I was at a used book store and the clerk was just getting this book ready for the shelf, and I snagged it up. Looking though it again today, I think I will be trying some other recipes from it as well.

Slow Cooker Cream of Navy Bean Soup

I start with chicken broth, leeks, onion, bay leaves and presoaked navy beans. This gets cooked on low for 10 hours, yes that seems like a lot of time, but that extra time helps to make this soup extra creamy and smooth.

The color changes a bit after cooking, but don’t fret. A cup of heavy cream will get the soup to a beautiful cream color.

Slow Cooker Cream of Navy Bean SoupI blend the soup up with 1 cup of heavy cream and then add 1 grated carrot. I don’t buy shredded carrots in a bag that you can find at the store. I grate a carrot on a cheese grater and then add to the finished soup. Surprisingly, the original recipe calls for the carrot to be added at the end, so it is not cooked. The grated carrot adds a little crunch and sweetness to the soup. SO good.
