Classic Navy Bean Soup

October 25, 2021

Autumn is here and I love that soup season is here. This bean soup, simmered low and slow with a smoky ham hock, is definitely on the list of delicious things to serve throughout soup season. If you would like to make your soup a bit creamier, then mash some of the beans with a potato masher or fork against the inside of the pot. You can also scoop out a small portion and run it through a blender and then return back to the pot. If you don’t have navy beans on hand you may certainly other types of beans. Cannellini, baby lima, Great Northern are also good beans to swap out. If you would like to make this a vegetarian soup then replace the ham with a Parmesan cheese rind, replace chicken stock with vegetable stock, and increase the carrots and celery. You may also add additional vegetables like celery root and parsnips.

This vibrant gazpacho showcases organic summer produce by using ripe, seasonal heritage tomatoes.

I like to use a mixture of red, yellow and orange tomatoes of different shapes and sizes to capture as many flavors as possible.
