There’s a lot of ham left over from Easter and Bob has been sick with what turned out to be bronchitis so I decided to put some soup together for him. A lot of the recipes I looked at for ham and potato soup had a cream base and I wanted to avoid those calories so I just started throwing things in the crock pot, turned out pretty tasty.
1 onion, chopped
2 carrots, sliced
2 stalks celery, sliced
3 Russet potatoes, diced (I left the skins on but you can peel if you prefer)
1 – 2 cups diced ham
1 can white beans, drained and rinsed (I used Great Northern but any kind of white bean would work)
3 (14.5 oz each) cans chicken broth
1 cup water
1 teaspoon Kosher salt
1/2 – 1 teaspoon pepper, depending on how spicy you want it
Add all ingredients to crock pot and cook on high for 5 – 6 hours.
