Easy Navy Bean Soup
Time is the most demanding 'step' of this easy and deliciously satisfying navy bean soup.
2 cups dry navy beans
1/2 cup carrots, chopped
1 medium onion, chopped
1 cup lean ham, chopped (can use a leftover ham bone or any other leftover meat; remove fat before cooking)
Salt and ground black pepper to taste
- Soak beans overnight; drain and rinse beans.
- Put the soaked beans, 6 cups of water, the carrots, onion, and meat in a large pan and bring it all to a boil. Turn the heat to low and cook 2 hours (until the beans are tender.) If needed, add more water while the beans are cooking.
Makes 3 servings.
