WW White Beans & Shrimp Recipe Notes
I adapted this recipe from the Weight Watchers One Pot Cookbook.
The recipe called for using a large 5 or 6-Quart slow cooker, which would have been WAY too big. (Using my slow cooker so much has improved my ability to spot potential problems and avoid kitchen catastrophes 🙂 )
For best results your slow cooker should always be between one-half and two-thirds full.
So, I adjusted and used my 1-½-Quart slow cooker, which worked perfectly. I think a 2-Quart would work well too.

I added 2 tablespoons of Cajun spices when I threw shrimp in. It's delicious over cauliflower rice.
Love the idea of adding Cajun spices to this. Thanks for taking the time to share!

Several previous comments used the word "bland" so I entered this recipe looking to upgrade the flavor...I started with using flavored diced tomatoes (I will try stewed next time) and I also added about a cup of cut Kalamata Olives (That's going to add a point!). Finally, our favorite seasoning, Herb de Provence, about a teaspoon. Oh yea, some dried onion. It was fantastic! My wife had hers over cooked cabbage. I was going to try some rice, but there really wasn't much juice. Ya know, a small can of V8 might do the trick while adding some juice. The possibilities are endless and with care in will only add a WW point or two. This was great!
