Ham, Cabbage and White Bean Soup



If you want a delicious ham and cabbage soup you just hit the jackpot! This hearty soup will make you crave it often it's fabulous! Don't miss out on trying this old classic!









Ham, Cabbage and White Bean Soup

Leftover Ham with bone attached (if it has honey or glaze on it rinse it off with cold water) pull chunks off and add to the pot along with the bone. You can also just buy pre packaged ham cubes to add.
6 carrots cleaned and sliced or a few cups of finger carrots
6 potatoes, peeled and cubed
2 cups small navy beans freshly cooked or canned other white beans (if canned rinse well)
5 or 6 cut up plum tomatoes fresh or canned
2 stalks of celery with leaves minced
2 cloves minced garlic
1 tablespoon granulated garlic
1 head cabbage, cut into quarters
1- 16 oz can chicken broth or homemade that's what I use
1/2 white wine
water
1/2 teaspoon each oregano, basil, garlic powder, thyme, parsley
Salt and pepper to taste
cayenne pepper (optional) just a pinch

In a large pot, fill water half full, add broth, wine, all the vegetables, ham bone and herbs.
Sprinkle to taste with salt and pepper. Cook until all vegetables are tender.  Add beans, cook 1/2 hour more. If in need add more water or chicken broth. Remove ham off the bone and add back to the pot.
 Serve with crusty Italian bread broken up in the bowl... or just dunk it!
Try this in the crockpot too!

  3. I love the! My dad used to make it all of the time, but he did not add the beans. We called it a "boiled dinner".

  4. I remember doing research on a soup with cabbage and Greg's comment sounds familiar being an Eastern states related recipe... I do like a hearty soup loaded with beans, meat broth and veggies - this is a great and easy recipe Claudia... have a great week...

  7. That looks so warming and delicious! Just took off a pot of split pea soup, but want to try this one soon. You don't happen to have a recipe for shin beef soup, do you? My mom's was amazing and, sadly, I never got the recipe. I've played around but never gotten it just right.

  8. It's dreary. And raining. And gray. I have all the ingredients - except ham - but turkey kielbasa might work. And I am going to bring this honey together.

  19. I just threw this soup together in my Crockpot using part of a big, thick-cut ham steak and cannot wait to get home this evening to eat it! The soup looks wonderful (just like the pictures) and is going to taste even better! Thanks for sharing...
