I used this recipe as a base and added other veg, I had in the frigde. It has a great taste, and it was so easy to make. I used hot water too.
Changed recipe to fit what was in my cupboard and to lower sodium and more vegetables. Onion Soup Mix with Mushrooms, No Knorr soup mix. Used HOT water for quicker cooking. Cooked on high for about 4 hours and then on low for about 1 hour. Since so many comments were that it was bland. I added 1/2 tsp each of Tumeric and coriander and about a teaspoon of leftover restaurant fresh salsa (ground tomatoes, jalapeno, and onion, etc). When I reduced the heat level to low, I added 1 can sliced stewed tomatoes and a bag of organic frozen soup vegetables. it was delicious and healthier.
Followed pretty much exactly (I turned slow cooker on high for the first couple of hours) and it turned out great with pretty much perfect flavor. I'll be making this again.
I followed the directions exactly and the soup turned out right. However, the flavor was very bland. We all ate it, but we all agreed there wasn't much flavor. I guess it depends on what you like.
Based on the other reviews, I had high hopes for this soup but it just was not good. The flavor was bland and overly salty. I followed the recipe exactly so I'm not sure what went wrong but we didn't care for it and threw the leftovers out. Sorry :/
This is my go-to bean and ham soup! I made the soup as directed, and it turned out perfectly. I froze some for work and kept hearing, "That smells so good." I replied, "It tastes even better." Thank you for a wonderful soup.
I made this soup exactly as is. I did not soak the beans the night before, since the directions did not mention it and I did worry that the beans would be tough. My hubby said that it was one of the best soups that I have ever made. WOW, thank you TOH for making me look good!!
This was so good. Even better the next day. I soaked (Great Northern) beans over night, then boiled them about an hour while preparing everything else, rinsed the beans and added to crock pot with everything else. Cooked on High setting for about 5 hours. Everything was blended and the perfect consistency. The broth is wonderful. This can be so versatile with other ingredients (meats, veggies) too. My husband loved it! I followed recipe, (with the exception of a couple shakes of Worcestershire Sauce). I might add some small pasta next time. Thank you for a wonderful recipe!
