White Bean and Ham Soup

White Bean and Ham Soup


  • 1 lb. white beans (Great Northern)
  • 1 lb. smoked ham, diced
  • 1 c. celery, sliced
  • 1 c. vidalia onion, chopped
  • 1 c. carrots, chopped
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 1 can Hunt’s diced tomatoes with basil, garlic & oregano, undrained
  • 1 can Progresso hearty tomato soup
  • Kosher salt and lemon pepper to taste
  • Fresh basil for topping


  1. Soak beans overnight in 4 cups water. Combine all ingredients in crock pot. Add water to cover and mix well. Cover and cook on high setting 3 hours, turn to low setting and cook for 8 to 14 hours. Can be cooked entire time on high setting for 4 to 6 hours. Remove bay leaves when done. Top with basil and serve hot. I love having a bowl with some crusty bread and use it to sop up the bowl!
