Five-Bean Soup is such an easy soup recipe, and you probably already have most the ingredients. This soup is my go to recipe when I am busy or don’t have time to go to the store. I usually keep all the beans in my pantry in case I need a quick recipe! I love to dip bread sticks in this soup. It’s delicious!

  1. This soup is DELICIOUS! I made it with vegetable broth instead of chicken broth (makes it kosher for the Daniel Fast!) and love this recipe. Thank you for sharing! I have passed it on to several friends and will definitely make it again.
      • Could anything go wrong with this if I left it on low in the slow cooker all day? Like for 8-9 hours? This seems like a great recipe, but we're gone all day and we don't have an auto set on our crockpot to turn on at a certain time. We'd have to turn it on in the morning...
        • It may be a little long for it to cook at that temperature. Does your slow cooker have a warm setting. Usually a warm setting on a slow cooker is around 145 degrees F. That might be a better setting for 9 hours. You will want to saute the onions and pepper first.
  2. This was FANTASTIC!!! I had soaked and precooked beans early in the week to make burritos but we were needing a soup night so I found this recipe. I have a vegan 17 yr old, vegetarian husband, and my 14 yr old and I are "flexitarian." Everyone LOVED this! I used veggie broth instead of chicken broth and my bean mix was a little different (black, pinto, adzuki) but I used the basic recipe and the exact spice measurements (so you can be flexible on the beans.) Some of us added Sriracha for heat. Perfect healthy soup with a side of salad! Thank you!

    This is a very flavorful and hearty soup. I made this to have for lunch for the next few days. You would never know that it's healthy and only 0 Weight Watchers Freestyle Points, not including any toppings. I did not use any toppings on this soup, as I didn't feel it needed it. It's so delicious!
