My grandma makes bean soup quite often. I've never been a huge fan... mainly because I just didn't think I liked soups. But since I've been expanding my soup tastes, I like bean soup now. Kevin loves it and Carson really loves it. I had some great northern beans leftover from canning this morning, so I decided to make a batch of this soup. There isn't really recipe that we have written down, its basically just throwing things together in the quantities that look good to you. But I've tried to capture it below.
White Bean and Ham Soup
2 cans great northern beans - (or about 2 cups dried - you'll want to increase the amount of water you use if you're using dried)
1 - 2 cups diced carrots
1 cup diced celery
1/2 cup diced onion
2 - 3 cups diced, cooked ham
2 - 3 bay leaves
salt and pepper to taste
water, just to cover... maybe about 2 cups? (be sure to cover by about an inch if you're using dry beans)
1 teaspoon organic Better than Boullion Veggie base
Throw all ingredients into your crockpot. Cover and cook on low all day.
