Slow cooker white beans are cooked in a whole grain mustard beer sauce for a flavorful and healthy side dish. This is a hearty crock pot recipe with easy prep!
It’s a little weird how silly nuances of being a food blogger (instead of just a food eater) worm their way into your everyday thinking. Besides brainstorming, prepping, cooking, and tweaking a recipe, you start worrying about things beyond producing a clearly written recipe and a tasty final product. For instance, sometimes you find yourself stuck in a quandary focused on how to make a bowl of beans look ‘pretty’.
Have you ever thought to yourself, “oh wow, that’s a pretty bowl of beans”? I didn’t think so. They’re usually some shade of brown, in some sort of sauce, and can’t benefit from a fun component like piped buttercream or sprinkles. They’re just beans. In a bowl.
I never really came up with a good answer to the whole beautifying beans thing, so I took the requisite pictures and guess what? They look just like beans in a bowl. Accurately-depicted, delicious, slow cooker white beans with a whole grain mustard beer sauce. That’s good enough for me!
