How to Make Mama's Ham and White Bean Soup
1Heat oil in a large stockpot over medium-high heat. Add onion, carrot and celery. Sauté for 10 minutes.
2Add garlic and sauté for 1 minute.
3Add chicken stock, water, diced ham, ham shank, oregano, bay leaf and 2 cans of beans. Cover and bring to low boil for 10 minutes. Stir; reduce heat and partially cover. Simmer for 30 minutes.
4Meanwhile, mash remaining can of beans with a potato masher until thick and creamy. Stir into soup mixture; blend well.
5Cover and simmer for 10 minutes to heat through.
6Discard ham shank and bay leaf before serving.
I have also made this soup using dry great northern beans. You just have to fully cook them and then begin with the directions in this recipe. Both ways I cooked them turned out yummy!!!
