Ham-And-Bean Soup

READY IN: 1hr 13mins
Recipe by DDROGERS120

Modified from Southern Living. This is a great way to use leftover holiday ham. Use 2 cup or 1 (16-0z.) lean ham steak. Don't forget to toss in the bone for added flavor.

Needed a little something more, so I added some heavy whipping cream, grated parmesan, and seasoning salt. YUM! Oh, and I subbed chick peas for the navy beans.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cook ham in hot oil in a Dutch oven over medium-high heat, stirring often, 6 to 8 minutes or until browned. Add diced onion, and next 5 ingredients, and saute 5 minutes or until onion is tender.
  2. Stir in navy beans, and next 3 ingredients (add ham bone if you have). Add water to cover. Bring to a boil; cover, reduce heat to low, and cook, stirring occasionally, 45 minutes. Remove and discard bone before serving.
