Three Bean Cassoulet

I first had this at Aleasha's.  Dad really likes dishes with beans and tomatoes. I usually add more diced, flavored tomatoes to make it more liquid and soup-like. Cooked cut up meat could also be added to be more of a stew.

1 (16 oz.) can stewed tomatoes, undrained, cut up
(I add another can of diced, flavored tomatoes)
1 (15.5 oz.) can butter beans, drained
1 (15.5 oz) can northern beans, drained
1 (15.5 oz) can garbanzo beans, drained
1 C. finely chopped carrots
1 C. chopped onions
2 garlic closes, minced
2 tsp. dried parsley flakes
1 tsp. dried basil leaves
1/2 tsp. dried thyme leaves
1/2 tsp. salt
1/8 tsp. pepper
1 bay leaf

Combine all ingredients in 2 quart slow cooker; cover.  Cook on high setting 30 minutes.  Reduce to low setting; cook 5-6 hours or until vegetables are tender.  Remove bay leaf before serving.

Optional oven directions:  Heat oven to 350°.  Combine all ingredients in ungreased 2 quart casserole.  Bake at 350° for 35 to 45 minutes or until vegetables are tender, stirring occasionally.  Remove bay leaf.
