Slow Cooker Ham & Bean Soup

I got a hankering for this the other day to go with some homemade bread (yes, the bread machine is back in business)! I tossed the ingredients together in about 5 minutes.

3-4 carrots, peeled and diced
4 potatoes, peeled and cubed
1 onion, chopped
1 clove of garlic
2-3 stalks of celery, chopped
1 can low sodium chicken broth
1 can water
1 can great Northern beans, undrained
1/2 tsp white pepper (black will work)
1 lg. bay leaf
2 cups diced ham

Put ingredients in slow cooker on High for 3-4 hours or low for 6-7 hours. Enjoy!

Yum! Just copied this -- it sounds great. My mom always made ham & bean soup when I was little and it was one of my favorites, but I have never gotten around to getting the recipe from her. Your version sounds just perfect.


I am glad that black pepper will work. I don't think that I have ever had white pepper. :-)

Oh yum, that sounds good! You know, I think I have most of this on hand. And YEAH, you got your bread machine fixed! Did you order a part and it came in? Gotta love fresh baked bread :)

I still want to shop for a bread machine but have no idea what to look for. This sounds good & easy....have you ever made it with anything besides the ham? Some kind of sausage maybe?
