Whenever I see beans at the market, my mind always seems to wander to soup recipes.  It just seems like the perfect fit.  Bean soup recipes also makes me think of my slow cooker.  Who doesn’t love to hit the easy button whenever we can?

I seem to always have mayocoba beans in the pantry, hence the frequent mayocoba soup recipes that keep popping up on this little part of the web.

It’s still high Summer here but I eat soup all year round.  This is another great soup though when the temperatures start to dip.  The beans make this a hearty meal, no need for an entree.  Just a bowl of this and a chunk of bread.

This was exactly what I was looking for- an easy yet tasty soup. Both my husband and I enjoyed it. My changes were cooking the beans in my instant pot, then sautéing the vegetables and adding them to the beans and broth and simmering until fully tender. The parsnip was a very well matched flavor for the soup.

A big pot of soup simmering in the slow cooker is such a delight to come home too - and this one sounds delicious, even though I must admit, I haven't heard of mayocoba beans before. Happy Friday and thanks so much for sharing this!
