Slow Cooker Ham and White Bean Soup

Hearty, cozy and just so easy! The crockpot does all the work for you. Perfect to use up that leftover hambone!

Los Angeles apparently has a winter season. It’s been in the 80s all week until it finally hit 59 degrees today. And when you live in Southern California, 59 is cold. Like parka, sweater-weather-Ugg cold.

And then you curl up on the couch with this cozy soup, easily made courtesy of your crockpot.

I’m serious. You’ll simply dump everything right in there – the hardest part is dicing up your veggies.

Best of all, you can use up that leftover hambone from the holidays! If not, diced black forest ham will also do the trick so you can enjoy this all year long.

Chungah – I love so many of your recipes. I always look forward to seeing the next one. I will definitely be trying this soup – although I have a hard time believing that it can top your Leftover Hambone Soup that is the BEST, and a family favorite every time I make it! Keep the great and easy recipes coming!

I love this soup. Thank you.

It’s all in the crockpot right now and I just press start! Will start to smell good soon!

I’m always pleasantly surprised how easy making a beautiful soup can be. Thanks for the lovely recipe!

I live in apple valley ca…and you are right about the temps cold here! I can see snow on the mtns! I will be making this soup soon! I have. Made a few of yor recipes and we love them! Thank you!

can you substitute with turkey?

What a great idea! Yes, absolutely.

How can you make this soup a little thicker?

Here’s a great list of how to make soups thicker!

Hope that helps!

I’m surprised you can use cooked beans in this recipe since the cooking time is so long. But they don’t fall apart?

Nope – that’s the beauty of a slow cooker! 🙂

I was thinking the same thing. If I wanted to use uncooked navy beans, would that be OK since they have to be in the slow cooker so long?

I am still experimenting with my slow cooker and loving every moment of it. This looks so good!!

I have made a similar recipe using chicken stock instead of water, and topping with just a splash of liquid smoke. SO yummy, and you are right; the beans hold up fine in the crock pot!

This looks so good. I’ve been looking for good slow cooker recipes, and this one is perfect. I think I’ll substitute the diced ham with black forest ham.

Chungah, this looks wonderful. I am always looking for slow cooker recipes AND hearty/healthy soups for my family. I can’t wait to try this recipe.

This looks so good! For some reason up in NJ it still feels warm, but once it cools down I am so making this!

Can you use dried white beans instead of can beans?

That sounds like a great idea but unfortunately, I cannot answer with certainty as I do not have much experience cooking with dried beans in the slow cooker. As always, please use your best judgment.

Soak the dry navy beans overnight in water to soften them ahs they will cook great in the crockpot

This looks great. Would it work well if I used a pound of rinsed, sorted and soaked dry beans? Thank you in advance.

That sounds like a great idea but unfortunately, I cannot answer with certainty as I do not have much experience cooking with dried beans in the slow cooker. As always, please use your best judgment.

Trying this tomorrow. Any idea of carb count?

One of my favorite Winter Soups! And with 10 inches of snow on the ground this morning in Denver, I wish I had the ingredients to make it.

I like to use half chicken stock or broth for extra flavor! But this is how I make my beans for years. They’re delicious!

How can I make this in a four quart slow cooker?

Cooking time will have to be adjusted accordingly.

The secret to GREAT ham and bean soup is to marinate fresh terragon leaves in about 1/4 -1/2 cup of white vinegar overnight. Once the soup comes up to temp add the terragon/vinegar mixture. Let it simmer for a good 2-3 hours. The last 1/2 hour or so add a little Kitchen Bouquet for color. THEN build a flour/water slurry to thicken it up a little. Of course you won’t know how thick it will be until it comes up to a boil. And I eliminate carrots entirely from the recipe.

My family loved this soup! I didn’t have a leftover ham bone (or ham) so I bought a ham shank and a ham steak. I also used chicken broth in place of water and served it over baby greens (spinach, kale and chard, put in just long enough to wilt). I was surprised at how much ham I was able to get off the shank. When I make it again, I will use a shank and not worry about getting ham. I like the “rustic” feel of the shredded shank. I will probably cut back on the salt as the shank was a bit salty. I will also add another can of beans to make it more substantial. One of the nice things about this recipe is that you can really make it your own.

Instead of using all water why not try chicken stock and a tablespoon of tomato paste.I get such good feed back on mine and a lot of times I’m ask for the recipe.

I bought a boneless ham for Christmas this year and wanted to use leftovers for soup. I’m concerned about how the flavor will be if I make without the bone though. Any thoughts?

Unfortunately, without further recipe testing, I cannot answer with certainty. As always, please use your best judgment regarding substitutions and modifications.

This looks so good. I’ve been looking for good slow cooker recipes, and this one is perfect. I think I’ll substitute the diced ham with black forest ham.

I love this recipe. I use vegetable stock in place of the water and I add my diced ham in a couple hours into cooking. I also add kale towards the end. Family loves this recipe and its very easy.
