Lent 2012

Well here we go again! I'm going to TRY to get at least 3 recipes a week up this Lent.

So here goes!

Lenten Bean Soup

1# small white beans
2 large carrots small dice
2 ribs of celery small dice
1 leek cut in 1/2 lengthwise and sliced
1 small bunch kale chopped fine
1 tsp (more or less) red pepper flakes
1 tsp black pepper
1 Tbs fennel seeds
8 oz. ditallini or orzo or any small sized pasta
1 qt. vegetable broth
salt to taste

Put all ingredients except kale and pasta in a crock pot and cook on high for 6 hours. Add the kale and pasta for the last hour.
