If anyone has Swiss Chard from the garden, this and also blackeyed peas, are a good recipe to use it up in. I'm looking forward to being able to have a garden one day . . .
Sounds very good.
Sounds tasty - thanks for sharing! I love ham & bean soup.
Man imposes his own limitations, don't set any.
Happy Father's Day everyone! My heavenly Father adopted me and I'm very happy with Him. I'm back from my SparkBreak and have a recipe for you. Fathers may want some all-out meat dish like pulled BBQ beef or pork, or crock pot ribs, so since that's traditional I thought I'd share something that's not.
So here is Ham and Bean Soup, from About.com's weekly emailed crock pot recipe.
This would be so easy to make substitutions, additions, go vegetarian, etc. Personally I would use some bean other than navy, and I'd also add extra veggies. Great with kale, swiss chard, arugula, endive, etc.
Ham and Bean Soup
1 pound dried Navy beans, sorted and soaked overnight, drained
2 quarts water
1 meaty ham bone or chunks of ham
1 teaspoon salt, or to taste
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
3/4 cup chopped celery with leaves
1/2 cup chopped onion
Combine beans and water in a large saucepan. Bring to a simmer; cook just until tender. Combine beans and liquid with remaining ingredients in slow cooker. Cover and cook on LOW for 8 to 10 hours. Serves 8.
