Succelent White Beans

Submitted by: LADYPHOENIX61

Introduction

The aroma is enticing! This was my first time trying this. It can be cooked on stovetop but I'm using the slow cooker on low for 6 hours, adding the tomatoes after 4 hours. The garlic and herbs give an appetite for this dish. Can't wait to dig in!
NOTE: The prep time includes overnight soaking time for the beans. The cooking time is approximate for stovetop cooking time.

    3/4 lb Great Northern Beans
    8 cups water
    2 bay leaves
    2 Tbsp EVOO(or use olive oil spray)
