Default Ham and Bean Soup

Ham and Bean Soup

Ingredients


1 cup dry navy beans



1 1/4 - 1 1/2 pounds meaty smoked pork hocks or one 1- to 1-1/2-pound meaty ham bone



1 cup chopped onion



1/2 cup sliced celery



1 tablespoon instant chicken bouillon granules



1 tablespoon snipped fresh parsley



1 tablespoon snipped fresh thyme or 1 teaspoon dried thyme, crushed



1/4 teaspoon pepper



2 cups chopped parsnips or rutabaga



1 cup sliced carrots



1 10 ounce package frozen chopped spinach, thawed and well drained




Directions


Rinse beans. In a Dutch oven combine beans and 5 cups cold water. Bring to boiling. Reduce heat and simmer, uncovered, for 2 minutes. Remove from heat. Cover and let stand 1 hour. (Or, skip boiling water and soak beans overnight in a covered pan.) Drain and rinse beans.




In the same pan combine beans, 5 cups fresh water, pork hocks or ham bone, onion, celery, bouillon granules, parsley, thyme, and pepper. Bring to boiling. Reduce heat and simmer, covered, for 1-3/4 hours. Remove pork hocks or ham bone; set aside to cool. Mash beans slightly. Stir in parsnips or rutabaga and carrots. Return to boiling. Reduce heat and simmer, covered, about 15 minutes or until vegetables are tender.




Meanwhile, cut meat off bones and coarsely chop. Discard bones. Stir meat and spinach into saucepan. Cook until heated through. Makes 4 or 5 servings.




Make Ahead Tip Prepare soup; cool slightly. Transfer to 1-to 4-serving size freezer containers. Seal, label, and freeze up to 1 month. To reheat, transfer frozen soup to saucepan. Cook, covered, over medium heat until heated through, stirring occasionally to break apart.
