Growing up, I loved my mom's ham and lima bean soup. It's just good old comfort food for me. I've never made mom's recipe but was meaning to ask for it after one day picking up a couple cans of lima beans for no reason. It'd been months since buying them and I purchased a new bowl that I wanted to use for soup photos so I scrounged around in the pantry and fridge. This was the result. It's a light soup, not heavy with tomatoes or cream, which was perfect for a family of 4 all feeling under the weather. My family really enjoyed it. I hope you do too!
