Directions

1. Sort and rinse beans. Soak beans overnight in slow cooker
-or- if preparing same-day, place in large pot and boil for one hour on stove top. For extra fast bean prep, place beans and water in pressure cooker, close, and cook for 20 minute at 12 lb pressure. Remove. Rinse in colander.
2. Measure olive oil into the bottom of the slow cooker. Then add beans, chopped onions, peppers, garlic, kale, water, tomato sauce and paste, spices, and wheat berries. Add more water or tomato sauce as needed to cover the beans and fresh-chopped ingredients in the crock pot.
3. Cook on high for 8 to 10 hours, or on low for 12 hours, checking occasionally for thickness.
