Quinoa, white beans, tomatoes, and basil combine to make the perfect slow cooker soup. It's warm, hearty, nutritious, and perfect after a long day with some crusty bread and lots of Parmesan cheese. You can easily substitute the white beans for any other beans you like and kale, spinach, chard, or any other hearty green will work. Also for a creamy version of the soup, consider blending the beans with some broth and adding them in the last hour of cooking. It will make a creamier version of the soup without adding any calories or high fat dairy.
