Quick Ham and Bean Soup Recipe

16 Comments

If you’re looking for a very quick and delicious last minute “Oops I Didn’t Plan Dinner Tonight” kind of recipe, check out this easy Ham & Bean soup using leftover ham, beans, and veggies! It’s super comforting and hearty with very minimal effort.

You could definitely alter it to your taste and add other veggies such as kale and green beans. The ham adds so much flavor so it doesn’t really need much seasoning. You can also substitute with beans you already have on hand as I had two cans of Great Northern and two cans of Pinto beans.

This soup is YUMMY and flavorful! I loved being able to use some of our leftover holiday ham with simple pantry ingredients.

My family isn’t super thrilled when I serve soup in general, but they enjoyed this one and leftovers were great, too. You could definitely adapt this for the slow cooker by first sautéing veggies and placing everything into the slow cooker. Enjoy!

    I made a ham soup with my leftover ham from Christmas and from a Christmas church activity earlier this month where I had leftover ham. Sooooo yummy! I left the ham bone in my crockpot most of the day. Then I separated out all the big pieces. Sorted through the bones and meat and other stuff. Then I strained out the juice (there are always small pieces of bone that get through otherwise) and added back the ham and added all the other ingredients. If you don’t use canned beans make sure they soak and cook long enough.
