“This is my go-to recipe! There's so much depth and flavor to this dish that it seems like it should be complicated, but it's actually very simple to make. Delicious meal!”
This recipe is perfect for using up a ham bone or leftover ham, or you can simply stir in diced ham!
Let's make it!
Dried White Beans + Ham
Put rinsed and drained white beans into the bottom of a slow cooker. Nestle a ham bone, ham hock, or ham shank on top.
Add carrots, celery, and garlic to the crockpot.
Add Chicken Broth
Pour chicken broth or stock into the slow cooker, over the other ingredients.
Add Seasonings, Cover + Cook
Stir in herbs and spices. Place lid on crockpot and set to LOW. Cook for 7 to 9 hours or until beans are tender.
Remove the Ham
Remove the ham bone/ shank/hock from the soup. Pull the meat from the bone and discard any cartilage or fat.
If desired, use an immersion blender to puree just enough of the soup to give it a creamy consistency while leaving most of the beans whole.
Serve & enjoy!!!
