red beans

How do you cook red beans in a crock pot? I know to soak them now what? I can not add any garlic or onions, as honey has many alergies.

How about doing it Southern style with a ham hock and a few bay leaves? Throw in some dried herbs like thyme or sage - maybe a few chopped carrots and celery -Cover with water about an inch over the beans and cook on low for about 6-8 hours or until the beans are soft. Season with salt and pepper, remove the ham hock, and serve over rice with a green veggie side - maybe a dollop of yoghurt or sour cream on top...you can adapt almost any recipe you find online by just taking out the onions and garlic. It will still taste good.

You'd know best what flavorings are safe -- I'd suggest herbs, or chiles (dried or fresh), if possible. A splash of vinegar or citrus at the end can be nice.

Here's a very simple red bean slow cooker recipe for inspiration (it'll take less time since you've presoaked, so start tasting halfway through): http://www.myrecipes.com...

I used to make these in a slow cooker. I didn't write the recipe that way because I don't have one anymore, but it will still work.http://food52.com/recipes...
