White Bean Soup

Top Review by ImPat

OMG wish I could rate this higher than 5 stars for the flavours alone that came from the smoked hock, I used a four bean mix and as I only had 1 cup of celery I added a 1 cup or finely diced carrot and I did have to add some extra water after the first 2 hour simmer for when I added the vegies I would have ended up with a stew rather than a soup but it was so filling for lunch (the next day on reheat and the rest - 7 cups of soup was put in the freezer) a meal with a crusty roll and pure comfort food.on a cold winters day. thank you JustJanS, made for Make My Recipe.
