      This bean soup recipe is "Simply the best." It is low carb too--no potatoes like most other bean soup recipes. The tomato sauce, celery salt and cider vinegar add just the right touch.

      This is delicious! Mine was a bit salty, but that could have been from the ham. Only thing I'd change is to reduce the amount of onion just a little bit and maybe reduce the celery salt, since my soup was a bit salty. Mine turned out very thick, which is how I like my bean soup. Made for Name that Ingredient tag game. Thanks for sharing!
