"This is a vegetarian version of the traditional French dish. If you are home while this is cooking, give the beans a stir every couple of hours." — Syd

This was absolutely delicious. I made mushroom broth in my crockpot the night prior to assembling this recipe, using 1/2 lb sliced mushrooms, 1/2 white onion, chopped and 4 cups of water. I actually reserved some of the mushrooms and added them to the ingredients.
I wanted a lot more veggies in this stew, so I doubled the carrots and potatoes and added some celery. I used a "chicken seasonings blend" of fresh rosemary, thyme and sage from the supermarket as a shortcut, and that worked out great!
This recipe is really adaptable to however you want to make it, but it's just as delicious precisely as written.
This soup smelled fantastic and I liked the flavor but the beans weren't cooked enough for my taste. Next time I think I'll cook them for about an hour on the stove and then add them to the crock pot.
This was really good the only thing I might do different next time is used canned beans rather than dry. It was like soup when I started but by the time the beans had cooked the liquid was almost gone, what was left was kinda slimmy. It's still very good, I love the flavor. Next time i will cook on the stove, used canned beans added the potatoes at the same time and only cook til potatoes are done, then it should be more like a soup. I might play around w/ dried spices also cause the fresh ones are to expensive and I usually only end up using a tiny bit then they go bad so its a waste of money.
this is a great recipe. I made one change to make it fat free. simmer onion and carrots in a small amount of water or vegetable broth this omits the oil.
My whole family loved this. The nine year old had two big servings, AND asked to take the leftovers to school for lunch the next day. I served it with fresh rosemary bread and a green salad.
To be perfectly honest, I found this to be a bit bland, even with the homemade mushroom stock. It's not that it wasn't good -- it just wasn't wonderful. Needs something to give it some interest.
We loved the beans. We ate them as a stew the first time. I took the left overs which were a little thicker, and used them in a Tuscan style dish, where I layered first the beans, then cooked spinach (with garlic and oil) and topped with a cooked filet of tilapia.
Husband made this on a perfect winter day...Was very good..I did add sour cream and shredded cheese to my bowl.
