Vegetable Stew

Ingredients

1 pound beans, assorted, dry

2 cups vegetable juice cocktail

1/2 cup dry white wine

1/3 cup soy sauce

1/3 cup apple juice, or pineapple juice

vegetable stock, or water

1/2 cup celery, diced

1/2 cup parsnips, diced

1/2 cup carrots, diced

1/2 cup mushrooms, diced

1 onion, diced

1 teaspoon basil

1 teaspoon parsley

1 bay leaf

3 cloves garlic, minced

1 teaspoon black pepper, ground

1 cup rice, or pasta, cooked

Instructions

Sort and rinse beans, then soak overnight in water. Drain beans and place in crock pot. Add vegetable juice, wine, soy sauce, and apple or pineapple juice. Cover with vegetable stock or water; the amount added depends on whether you prefer a soup (more liquid) or a stew (less). The juice adds just a tad of sweetness and the soy sauce adds depth and the tang of salt. Cook at high for 2 hours. Add vegetables, herbs, and spices, and cook for 5-6 hours at low until carrots and parsnips are tender. When tender, add rice or pasta and cook for one additional hour.
