White Bean and Ham Soup

This hearty White Bean and Ham Soup is made with Great Northern beans, plenty of diced ham, and lots of veggies! This is a perfect recipe to use up leftover ham.

White Beans and Ham Soup


1/2 cup onion, chopped

1/2 cup celery, chopped

1/2 cup carrots, chopped

2 garlic cloves, minced

1 Tbsp olive oil

ham bone or hock

1 1/2 to 2 cups ham, diced

1 Tbsp Italian seasoning

1 to 2 pounds of white beans (navy, great northern, or cannellini)

salt and pepper to taste


Rinse and sort through the beans, discarding any rocks or debris. Set aside. Add oil to a large soup pot over medium heat. When hot, stir in the chopped onions, carrots, and celery. Cook vegetables until softened. Stir in garlic and cook a few seconds more. Add beans, water, and seasonings. Bring to a boil and then reduce heat and simmer for 2 to 3 hours until beans are tender. Add more water as needed. 30 minutes before serving add ham.
