Number of Servings: 6

Ingredients

    2 (15.5 oz) cans - low sodium black beans, rinsed and drained
    1 ham bone or ham hock
    6 cups chicken stock
    3 tbsp unsalted butter
    2 medium yellow onions, chopped
    2 garlic cloves, minced
    1 cups celery, chopped, including leaves
    1 tsp marjoram
    1 bay leaf
    1/4 tsp black pepper
    1/2 cup dry sherry

Tips

Serve with bread and non-fat plain greek yogurt.

Freeze the extra soup.


Directions

Put beans, ham bone/hock, and broth in Crockpot and cook on HIGH until boiling, about 1 hour.

In the meantime, melt the butter in a large saucepan on medium heat. Add onions, garlic, and celery and cook until softened, about 5 mins. Add this mixture, bay leaf, and marjoram to the Crockpot and cook for 7 hours on LOW.

Add pepper and sherry and cook for an additional 15 mins on LOW.

Remove the bone/hock and add any bit of meat back into the soup. In batches, pulse the soup in a food processor to the desired texture (I prefer more chunky-this takes about 3 pulses per batch). You could also use an imersion blender to puree the soup.
