1 (15-ounce) can white kidney beans, or pinto beans
1 cup finely diced onion
1 cup diced carrot
3 teaspoons dijon mustard
2 Tablespoons molasses
1 Tablespoon soy sauce
2 teaspoons apple cider vinegar
1 Tablespoon chili powder
1 (14.5-ounce) can fire roasted tomatoes (and juice!)
2 cups water
salt to taste before serving
Use a 5-6 quart slow cooker. Put beans into pot, and top with onion and carrot. Add all seasonings and spices. Pour in the entire can of tomatoes, and add water. Stir.
Cover and cook on low for 7-8 hours, or on high for 4-5. Before serving, pulse a bit with a hand-held stick blender to blend some of the beans. This will thicken your broth and provide a richer flavor. If you don't have a stick blender, scoop out about 1 cup of liquid and pulse in a traditional blender, and stir back into the crock.
