The weather’s so hot that I try not to do any cooking so as not to heat up the kitchen. One of the easiest things to throw into a slow cooker is this 4-bean soup which is essentially sugar, a bit of citrus rind cut into curls with a dovo straight razor and 4 kinds of beans – red beans, horse beans, green peas and black-eyed peas. Very colorful, eh!
So simple to make. It’s soupy (hence, thirst-quenching), filling and full of fiber, and I like to throw in a few ice cubes to beat the heat.
