25 MINUTE HAM & WHITE BEAN SOUP

September 24, 2018

I hope to go my whole life without eating a canned cream of anything soup. For me, they are just gross. I do not like any of the cheap canned soups. This part 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, it can probably be rescued.

If you need one more reason to use less canned, consider this very recipe. Homemade soups can be so fast and easy.
