Number of Servings: 8


    1.5 cup white beans (14.5 oz. can)
    1.5 cup red kidney beans (14.5 oz. can)
    6-7 cups stock or broth (I used homemade stock made from the bones of several smoked chickens, veggies, and some pork chop bones).
    1 red onion, diced
    1 head cabbage
    1 cup cooked, diced lean ham
    A few sprigs of dried thyme
    Pepper and salt to taste


*Heat broth in a stock pot over medium-high heat.
*In a small saute pan, heat 1 tbsp. of olive oil over medium-low heat. Add the diced onion and allow it to cook until caramelized.
*Add the beans, onions, ham, herbs, and cabbage to the pot and barely simmer for 1.5 hours.
*Taste for seasoning and then make any final adjustments.

*Makes eight 1.5 cup servings

*Cook's note: You may need to add other spices/herbs if using boxed broth. The stock I used was made with a variety of smoked bones and vegetables, slow cooked for 6 hours, and then de-fatted.*
