I need to know what can be added to Great Northern beans and ham for soup. I don't have any broth. I do have carrots and celery available to use. What would be other ingredients to add?

Use the ham itself along with carrots, onion, and celery to make a broth. Cover all of it with water, bring to a boil, simmer, then add the beans later on. Salt and pepper the soup last or else your beans will come out tough.

You dont need broth if you have the ham. The carrots and celery are great add some chopped onion and I always put some potatoes in my beans.

Use red potatoes and add them last so they stay chunky. Salt pepper and a few red pepper flakes tops it off.

Be sure to add raw onion (chopped into small pieces) as a topping or garnish on each bowl of soup before setting them on the table.

I might have goofed up. I slow cookered the beans and ham already. I was planning other ingredients to add later.

It will be fine. Just start a soup pot by sauteeing diced onions, garlic, celery and carrots. Add in the cooked ham and beans and some herbs or spices and more broth or water. Simmer it for 30 minutes or so and it should be delicious!

I always add lentils and pearl Barley to Bean Soup, and I mix many different kinds of beans. I did this long before you could buy it mixed. And when I purchase my bags of dry beans, I buy black beans, pinto beans,navy beans, and kidney beans.

And since I no longer use Ham because of the sat fat and the sodium, I usually add a little Cumin and a couple dashes of liquid smoke to fool my taste buds.

Sounds like you have a good start (maybe even enough to freeze or save for a second meal).

  • If you still have room in your crock pot just add some water and whatever types of herbs and seasonings you like (start with small amounts as they tend to get stronger as they "age" and you can always add more but difficult to remove).
  • Saute any vegetables you have and add to your soup.
  • You might want to add 2 or 3 drops of Tabasco/hot sauce for added flavor (more if you like it hot).
  • It is always best to add salt when beans are almost ready to serve otherwise beans may be a little "hard" and not as soft as you like them.

  • Many people remove a portion of beans and mash them and return to the pot as this gives a thicker soup mixture.
