12 ounces dry gigante beans

1 can (28 ounces) chopped tomatoes, with juice

2 stalks celery, diced

1 onion, diced

4 garlic cloves, minced

Water as needed

Salt to taste

  1. Put the beans in a large bowl, cover with water, and soak for eight hours.
  2. Drain, rinse, and add to a slow cooker with the remaining ingredients. Stir, and add a little water to cover the beans completely with liquid.
  3. Cover, and cook for 8 to 10 hours on low, until the beans are soft and tasty. Season to taste with salt (we use about 1 teaspoon of salt). Enjoy hot, at room temperature, or cold.
