Ham and Bean Soup With Spinach

READY IN: 55mins
Recipe by Judy-Jude

This is a soup that I made recently. My husband really enjoyed it and I believe I will be making this a lot this winter. He had no idea that I used spinach and was very suprised when I told him. He hates spinach but loves this soup!

I specifically chose this recipe because of the spinach...and in the end I forgot to add it! I did everything else according to the recipe and it was so delicious. Very good comfort food and very tasty. I used the leftover bone from a ham that we cooked for New Year's Day. I simmered the bone in the liquid for a couple of hours and it was so tasty.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a medium stock pot, saute ham in oil and butter until lightly browned, about 5 minutes, add onion, celery, carrots and garlic over medium heat, until vegetables are softened, not brown.
  2. Add chicken broth and seasonings; simmer 15-20 minutes.
  3. Stir in cannellini beans, spinach and parsley.
  4. Cook briefly just until spinach wilts, about 2-4 minutes.
  5. Remove from heat.
  6. In a small bowl, combine eggs and Parmesan with a whisk, I like to temper the egg/cheese mixture by adding 2 Tablesppons of the hot liquid from the soup, to the egg/cheese and stir quickly after each addition, then add egg mixture into the soup and stir until smooth.
  7. Salt and pepper to taste.
