Which beans are best for making creamy ham and bean soup? We prefer to use Great Northern Beans or Cannellini Beans. You can also use your favorite combination of canned beans.
Heat a large pot on the stove over medium heat. Take the first 8 ingredients and put them in the pot together. Boil everything together for 30 minutes. Take the chopped ham and stir it into the soup mixture. Simmer for another 20 minutes.
After cooking, add white pepper to taste according to your preference. That’s guys. Can you believe how simple this recipe is?
If you need to thicken the soup, just use a little flour or even heavy cream or cheese to help solve this problem. 😉
In fact, if you like to add cheese to the soup, don’t be afraid to put 1/4 cup of cheddar cheese per bowl. It enhances all the flavors and makes it more addictive.
Can you make ham and bean soup in a crock? Just put all the ingredients in a slow cooker and cook for 4 hours at high temperature or 6-8 hours at low temperature.
How to store ham and bean soup? Placed in an airtight container, this soup can be stored in the refrigerator for 3-5 days. Alternatively, you can freeze it in a container or freezer bag for up to 1 month. Reheat by cooking on the stove or in the microwave until heated.
There are many delicious ingredients in this soup. I like the taste of delicious shredded ham and cooked northern beans. Don’t forget the soft but crunchy chopped carrots. They added some extra color and crunch to the soup.
We hope you like this soup as much as we do! It’s simple, delicious, and great.
