Provencal Ham & Bean Soup

Total Time

Prep: 15 min. + soaking Cook: 7 hours


10 servings (3-1/2 quarts)

There is nothing quite like the wonderful feeling of when you open the door and smell this delicious stew bubbling away in the slow cooker. To make preparation even easier, I like to start it the night before, and then all I have to do is turn on the slow cooker in the morning. —Lyndsay Wells, Ladysmith, British Columbia
