Beans are filled with tons of protein so this Classic White Bean Soup is "soup"er hearty!
What You'll Need:
- 1 (16-ounce) can navy beans, undrained (see note)
- 1 (15.8-ounce) can great Northern beans, undrained
- 1 cup water
- 1/4 cup butter
- 2 large carrots, diced
- 1 cup chopped cooked ham or 1 ham hock
- 1/3 cup chopped scallions
- 1 bay leaf
What To Do:
- Combine beans in a large saucepan; mash slightly with a potato masher or back of a large spoon. Stir in water, and cook over low heat until thoroughly heated.
- Melt butter in a medium skillet over medium-high heat; add carrots, and cook, stirring constantly, until tender. Add carrots, ham, scallions, and bay leaf to bean mixture. Cook over low heat 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Remove and discard bay leaf.
The navy bean - a type of kidney bean - gets its name from the fact that the U.S. Navy has long considered it a staple on their menus.
