I use this basic recipe as a base for Meal Prep Sunday: I make a large batch and eat it for lunch over the week. I add different spices to individual cups to vary the day’s flavor. Ground chipotle or curry for heat, ginger or fresh herbs for aroma, etc.
Assemble cannellini beans, tomatoes, onions, carrots, spinach, celery, salt, bouquet garni, and bay leaves in a slow cooker. Pour in enough water to cover. Cook on Low or High until carrots are tender and flavors meld, at least 3 hours. Serve immediately or cool to room temperature. Ladle portions into reusable containers and refrigerate.
