Ham, White Bean and Tomato Soup

I found this while searching for recipes to use up leftover ham, and it's 'after-work friendly' as well. This goes well with a green salad and breadsticks

This was very yummy! I love all kinds of bean soup but my husband doesn't and he liked this and even ate the leftovers. I didn't have sage or parsley so I just left them out. I had some fresh tomatoes that needed to be used so I chopped and roasted them and threw them in instead of canned tomatoes. Very good!

Fantastic! A great full bodied soup with lots of my 5-a-Day in it! I made this as posted and was rewarded with a hearty bean soup with layers and layers of flavour. We ate this with home-made bread and had seconds on a cold and windy day! Made for the Cool Beans event in the Photo's Forum and VERY much enjoyed! FT:-)
