Very simple soup with good flavor. I increased the amounts of carrots and celery to use up what I had on hand needing to add just a bit more water to give the broth needed. I blended up about 1/3 of the beans before adding the other veggies to make it a bit creamier. Will definitely keep this in my rotation of winter soups. Thanks.

This soup turned out great. I did make a couple changes, I decided I wanted to make it in the crockpot after soaking the beans all day and cooked it overnight. I used more carrots, celery and onion, about a cup of each, and also added a minced jalapeno. These were things that I needed to use up. I enjoyed a bowl for a late breakfast and really enjoyed it. Thanks for sharing this delicious, simple recipe.

Excellent recipe! I add about 3-4 small gold or red potatoes to mine, and I always overdo the veggies as well. Great base, and it turns out wonderful! Such a cozy soup for the few cold days we get down here in TX! :D

My Husband and I thought this recipe was delicious ! I made a few changes, I omitted the bay leaf, carrot and celery. I also used 2 boxes of chicken broth instead of water. It made for a delicious broth. Thank you for the recipe.

A great tasting soup that DH and I fully enjoyed. The simplicity allows the goodness of the beans to shine. My single suggestion for this recipe would be not to use a BIG bay leaf, lol. I tossed in the biggest one in the package (fresh from Penzey's!) and it was assertive. This is a perfect Fall/Winter soup and cornbread was a great go-along. Thanks Sue, I haven't made a navy bean soup in ages and we loved it. Made for Photo Tag.

This is a good basic bean soup recipe. I like to add garlic, cumin,and potatoes cubed up small. If I don't have a ham bone I'll use smoked ham hocks or smoked neck bones. Sometimes I'll add a little green chile. Great for cold weather---DG
