Lately I've been seeing tons of slow cooker recipes that call for two- to four-hour cook times. Can we talk about this for a second? Isn't the sole purpose of the slow cooker to do its thing while you're either sleeping or at work? I don't know many people who do either of those things for two to four hours. Although, I'd totally be down for a two-hour workday.
This black bean soup is a true slow cooker recipe, one that needs 10 to 12 hours, but it's perfect for long days at work when you come home and literally just have to scoop it into a serving bowl and top with a dollop of the fresh cilantro crema that comes together in a minute. It's a hearty, easy, vegetarian meal that's perfect for getting dinner on the table after a long, busy day.
