Pimp My Ham and White Bean Soup

girlwonder88 | Nov 6, 2008 11:13 AM

I"m home sick today and trying to throw something easy and really comforting, yet wonderful, together in the crock pot. It's nasty and rainy out, which makes soup sound even better.

So far, I've got a ham hock in the crock pot and a pound of white beans boiled and soaking for an hour. I was planning to saute onion and carrots and garlic, throw that in the crockpot with the beans and some broth and herbs..oregano? and see where it all ends up. I'd love to hear any exciting suggestions you might have, though. Vinegar? Sherry? Kale? Spinach? Puree part of it? I've done a lot of bleary-eyed, toddler-assisted googling, but nothing looks fabulous.
