This recipe is an easy and satisfying way to transform leftover ham and a ham bone into a hearty meal. Start this classic soup by simmering a ham bone or ham hocks with water to create a savory broth. Add carrots, celery, onion, and white beans and cook until softened. Mash up some of the beans to thicken the soup, then stir in diced ham. Serve with crusty bread for a simple lunch or dinner.
What to buy: In case you’re having trouble finding cannellini beans, they’re sometimes labeled white kidney beans instead.
