Ingredients

    1 small bag white beans (Navy or great northern)
    2 cloves garlic chopped small
    1 tbsp dried thyme
    2 whole bay leafs
    3 slices turkey bacon
    1 medium onion chopped
    1 cup chopped carrots
    4 cups chicken broth (low sodium)
    2 cups left over cooked ham
    3 medium potatoes
    1 tbsp EVOO
    2 cups water


Directions

Soak beans overnight covered in water
Drain in the morning when ready to start soup

In a large soup pot, cook bacon until barely crispy - remove
Add EVOO, chopped onion and garlic saute until onions/garlic are soft.
add chicken broth, bay leafs, thyme, dijon mustard, brown sugar, cubed potatoes, carrots, cubed ham.
Cut up bacon and add back to pot.
Bring to a boil.
Lower heat and simmer until vegetables and beans are soft. Adding water to maintain some fluid.
I allowed my soup to cook most of the day. This caused the soup to be almost stew like.

  • Good
    This was pretty good. I didn't know how much dijon mustard to add? so I just squeezed some in, maybe a tbsp and used a little less Thyme. - 4/17/09

    Sounds great! Do you think I could use Stevia instead of Brown sugar?

    Sure, or maple syrup might be another alternative.
