25 MINUTE HAM & WHITE BEAN SOUP

January 10, 2014

I hope to go my whole life without eating a canned cream of anything soup. They are just gross. I do not like any canned soups. Please, just no.

This unfortunate reality of our soup world made me think for about 24.5 years that I did not like soups at all. Then, I started cooking a lot more. And doing experiments with food. I started making soups I liked – hearty, with fresh ingredients. Soups and stews are now one of my favorite meals to prepare. The simple, old fashioned-ness, for one, but also how forgiving they are. Throw some stuff in. Taste test. If it turned out strange, just throw more, different stuff in.

If you need one more reason to blow off the can, it is this very recipe. Soups can be so fast and easy. With a recipe like this out there that takes only 15 minutes of cook time, you do not need the pre-made stuff.
