This is a recipe I found when I was on Weight Watchers and liked it enough to keep making it even when we weren't counting points. A good comforting soup for chilly days.
- 2 cups cooked ham
- olive oil
- 1 onion, chopped
- 2 carrots, chopped
- 1⁄2 teaspoon dried sage
- 1 can white kidney beans, drained and rinsed (about 19 oz.)
- 1 1⁄2 cups chicken stock (I make mine from bouillion cubes.)
- 2 cups water
- 1 bag fresh spinach (or 1/2 pkg frozen)
- Brush very large non-stick saucepan with oil, saute ham, onions, carrots and sage over medium heat for about 5 minutes or until veggies are mostly cooked.
- Add beans, chicken stock and water; bring to a boil.
- Simmer for about 5 minutes.
- Stir in spinach and cook for another 2 to 5 minutes until spinach is cooked through.
Fast, easy, and good.True that it doesn't have a lot of taste, and I found myself adding quite a bit of salt and pepper to it. I might try smoked ham in the future.
This had no flavor - I used fresh sage - but followed the rest of the recipe. I used boiled ham - perhaps it needed black forest or another kind.
This soup was not only delicious, it was beautiful! Hearty without being heavy, full of good things for you. I'm happy to have found it. Thanks!
