You don't have to wait for an invitation to enjoy this bean soup! Inspired by the one that's been served at the Senate Dining Room since the early 20th century, our U.S. Senate Bean Soup is a true winner. Between the rich broth, the chunks of smoky ham, and the tender-cooked beans, it's hard to choose what we love best about it!

What You'll Need

  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1 cup chopped onion
  • 2 celery stalks, chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 6 cups chicken broth
  • 4 (15-1/2-ounce) cans Great Northern beans, undrained
  • 1 cup diced cooked ham
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 cup instant potato flakes
  • 2 teaspoons chopped fresh parsley

What to Do

  1. In a soup pot over medium-high heat, heat oil until hot; cook onion, celery, and garlic 5 minutes, or until soft. Add broth, beans, ham, and pepper and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low and simmer 20 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  2. Stir in potato flakes and parsley and continue cooking 15 minutes, or until slightly thickened.

Fruity Watermelon Pops

It just doesn't get more refreshing than watermelon pops in the summer! Plus, watermelon is a great fruit to help keep you hydrated when the sun is blazing overhead. We like to add a little bit of something extra to our Fruity Watermelon Pops by mixing in chopped berries or fresh mint! Yum!
