Recipe by Ginny Sue
This is a simple hearty soup that is just perfect in cooler weather. This comes together quickly, but tastes like it has been simmering for hours.

Very tasty! I used dried white beans that I cooked in the crockpot overnight, then added the other ingredients this morning and cooked for another hour or so. I did not use a tomato and found that with the ham being salty, we did not need to add any salt, just pepper. Great recipe--also would freeze well.
- 1 tablespoon oil
- 1 small onion, diced
- 4 cloves garlic, minced
- 2 (15 ounce) cans small white beans, drained
- 3 (14 1/2 ounce) cans chicken broth
- 1 large tomatoes, chopped
- 1 1⁄2 cups chopped cooked ham
- 1 teaspoon dried thyme
- salt and pepper, to taste
