Ham Soup

Submitted by: KELLYTHEJERK

Introduction

I'm the only one in the house that likes pea soup, so when I have a ham bone I'm always looking for new recipes. I made this one up after running out of recipes. It's quite delicious and low fat and low cal - I was surprised because usually my made-up recipes are not exactly diet-friendly.

Ingredients

    4 Qts Water
    3 t Beef Base
    3 T Chicken Base
    4 Large Potatoes, scrubbed and diced
    4 C Ham, chopped
    1 Carrot, scrubbed and sliced
    1-1/2 Small Onions, chopped
    2 Stalks Celery, Chopped
    1/2 C Lentils
    2/3 C Quick Barley

Directions

Boil the ham bone in the water with the soup bases. Chop the celery, carrots, and onions and add to the boiling water. Simmer for about 10 minutes. Turn broth down and remove the ham bone carefully; allow to cool enough to cut the excess meat off the bone. Add diced potatoes to the broth and return to boil. Also add lentils and barley now. Then add the meat and eat when hot enough for you.
