I made this recipe for dinner. It was really good. My husband don't eat leftovers , but he at this the next day for lunch.
This soup is delicious! I have made two batches this week (enjoying new recipes during #stayhomestaysafe). It is pure comfort in a bowl. The seasonings are delicious. The whole family enjoyed it. We paired it with some salad and had nice dinners. Definitely going into my repertoire.
Stuck inside for a couple weeks without ham or bacon, still I have beans, veggies and seasoning to make this tasty recipe.
Excellent as is.
This recipe is an awesome fool proof recipe. We love to use a hambone and add cubes of ham . We also use smoked ham shanks on occasion instead of hocks , just remember to try to fish out small bones. We also grate the carrots. We also often use Italian seasoning plus poultry, and dash type seasoning instead of the recipe. One secret ingredient is to use Jamieson ham soup base , knocks it outta the park. You can thicken it easily , if you like a thicker broth or something to ladle over corn bread. Even better the next day .
Great recipe. Full of flavor and very satisfying on a cold night. For a change up, I added some chopped greens to it, which makes it a complete meal. I used collards, but spinach or any other dark greens would work.
Very tasty recipe! Used one large jar Randall northern beans, 1-1/2c cubed cooked ham, one box low sodium chicken broth, one can diced tomatoes, filled water from empty tomato can, added 4 med potatoes, cubed, med onion, three stalks celery sliced, four peeled and sliced carrots, and omitted: savory, marjoram and thyme. Cookes all In crock pot all day!
Just made my first batch and it is very good. It's definitely not my mother's bean soup. I didn't even have to add ketchup.
Overall a good recipe, but if you aren't a fan of thyme, it isn't so great. I would recommend dialing that and the savory back. I added a potato to soak up the thyme flavor and threw it out when the soup was done. Much better flavor then.
This is an awesome recipe. I follow the directions; however, I do use leftover ham that is cut into bite size chunks. No need to precook veggies, everything cooks up lovely in my dutch oven in an hour.I love to put some rice in my bowl ( or cornbread) first. I have made this 3 times and I will make it many more times. My husband loves it as well. Next time, I will try it with chicken and wild rice.
