13 Bean Crock Pot Soup

A crock pot version of 13 bean soup. Super easy & super yummy! I buy the 13 bean soup mix in the bulk section of my supermarket. It contains the 13 varieties of dry beans as follows: Baby limas, large limas, garbanzo, great northern, black-eyed peas, navy, black, red pinto, red lentils, green lentils, yellow splits, green splits, and kidney beans. Even my toddler had fun eating this soup. It was almost like watching a kid sort their M&M candies into colors! We took the opportunity to teach her the name of each bean as she picked it out to eat. Be sure to plan ahead, as the beans need to soak overnight or for 8 hours before cooking. (Cook time noted includes soaking time.) *Update December 2011: Since hosting the January 2011 Soupfest tag game in the Topic of the Month forum I have been using Sharon123's recipe for homemade Herb & Garlic broth (link in ingredients section) instead of just plain water as the soup base. It's absolutely delicious and so easy to make and store in the freezer. Feel free to use that recipe or any other broth for some or all of the water in the soup (not for soaking the beans).
