I found this dish had a lot of potential but really lacking in flavor. It was quite bland and I figured out why. Why simmer canned beans for 8 hours and then discard the onion and garlic? Thi...

Have been cooking Green Soup for years (with almost same recipe). Delicious. Don't understand need for 8 hour cooking of canned beans, or why you would discard onion and garlic. Kale would best...

I changed it up a little; chopped up the onion and garlic, threw it in the crockpot with the chicken/beef stock, beans, sausage, and carrots. Don't add any extra salt, the sausage will take car...
