Can I Freeze This Slow Cooker Bean Soup Recipe?

Absolutely! You can freeze any leftovers you have from this crockpot bean soup recipe. If you want to make a larger batch than you need, just place any extras in an airtight container or a freezer bag and then place it into your freezer for up 2 months.

I Don’t Have Any Bay Leaves! Can I Use Something Else?

Listen – I am a big advocate for using what you have. If I don’t have a bay leaf, but I happened to have some thyme or rosemary… I use it. If I don’t have any garlic cloves, but I have garlic powder… I use it. I don’t freak out. Use what you have and just know it is going to taste fantastic.
