janetjkim , 1 years agoLove it. Made it for my family and everyone loved it. I also made it without the potatoes and peas. Added corn because I had it leftover from another meal. Definitely will be making this again.

Tone36 , 1 years agoAlthough I chose to make this recipe without the potatoes and peas it still was a great recipe!
Boppy , 1 years agoUsed this as a jumping off point.Omitted the peas and potatoes to lower the carbs. I also used dried beans that I soaked for 8 hours. When the beans were done I put About one third of them in the blender and then added them back in to give the soup a better consistency. My husband loved it and he's a picky eater.Even my 3 year old granddaughter thought it was delicious. Beepa
Biologyteach , 1 years agoThis recipe was Easy! Great! I added 1tbs marjoram, few dashes of Tabasco for a little heat and some baby spinach. This will be my new go to soup when it's chilly out.

Jaywilson , 1 years agoThis is a wonderful soup and I give it five stars without hesitation. Used it to finish off a nice ham made for 2012 new year's day meal. I didn't have potatoes on hand so I tossed in a can of garbanzo beans and used a red pepper powder made by my friend Dennis in New England that he calls "Dragon Powder". Great combination and a delicious soup.

bubbri , 1 years agoI've made ham and bean soup for my entire cooking life. A pretty good bean soup. I just looked up this recipe to get the proportions I needed to to use. When I saw the recipe was close to what I usually did, I decided to follow it. First taste after the soup was cooked was a great surprise! This bean soup is exceptionally tasty. What a treat!! Thank you, webtexan.
