Ham and Bean Crockpot Soup

Ham and Bean Crockpot Soup

Anyone else have a ham bone left over from Easter dinner?  Well if you do, here’s a yummy way to use it up:  Ham and Bean Soup!

Ingredients:

  • ham bone and any extra ham meat (chopped)
  • 3 celery stalks (with leaves!)
  • 3 T chopped onion
  • 1 c pinto beans (dry)
  • 2 c Great Northern beans (dry)
  • Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • Salt

Place ham bone in the crock and fill with water.  Turn crockpot on to the “High” setting.  Add chopped celery.

Saute onion in olive oil on medium heat for 3-5 minutes or until translucent.  Add to the pot!

This is more than 3T of onions: I was multitasking and making two things at once and both recipes needed sauteed onions!

Add beans and a little salt.

8 hours later remove the bone and remove any meat still on it to put back in the soup.  If you have any extra ham meat (maybe another cup or so) add it to soup. 

 Serve and enjoy!
