    BeachGirl's Note:

    A real comfort food, especially for cold winter days. White bean soup is my family's favorite, and I often use any of the following beans: butterbeans, baby or large lima, navy, or Great Northern. Prep time does not include soaking time.

      This soup is fantastic! Far exceded my expectations for such a simple dish! I used what I had on hand, which was regular chopped carrots rather than baby carrots. I also used 2 97% fat free ham slices instead of the bacon. I put the ham and carrots in the pot and browned the ham, then added all the other ingredients (except beans) and simmered for a while. Then I stirred in a can of white beans (didn't have time for dried ones) and added 1/2 cup of green peas. I could have eaten the whole pot by myself, but I kindly shared it with my husband - who liked it too. I will definately be keeping this one!
