Creamy Crockpot Northern Bean Soup

An easy to prepare hearty soup to warm your family.

1 lb northern beans, dry
1 medium onion, chopped or 2 Tbsp onion powder
1 Tbsp Bakon seasoning, to taste
1 Tbsp chopped dried parsley
2 garlic cloves, chopped
McKay's No MSG Chicken Style Seasoning
Vegetarian ham bits
Olive oil (optional)

Wash and sort beans. Place beans in a crockpot. Add water, covering beans (water should be about 2-3 inches above the top of the level of the beans depending on how thick or thin you want the final soup to be). Add onion, Bakon, parsley, and garlic cloves. Turn on low and let cook slowly, preferably overnight or 10-12 hours during the day. When beans are nearly done, add McKay's No MSG Chicken Style Seasoning and vegetarian ham bits. Adjust to taste. Add optional olive oil.

Serve with cornbread or homemake yeast rolls.
