User Rating 5 Star Rating (1 Review)


Ham and bean soup is made with dried navy beans, tomatoes, onion, and ham bone with ham.


  • 1 cup dried navy beans
  • 1 meaty ham bone
  • 1 1/2 quarts water
  • 1 cup chopped celery
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 2 cans (14.5 ounces each) tomatoes
  • 1 teaspoon chopped dried parsley or 1 tablespoon fresh chopped parsley
  • salt and pepper


Soak beans overnight in cold water; drain. Cover beans and ham bone with 1 1/2 quarts water. Add celery, onions, tomatoes, and parsley. Cover and simmer 4 to 5 hours. About halfway through cooking time, when ham is very tender, remove ham from bone and cut into pieces. Return to the soup. Season with salt and pepper.

Satisfying Ham & Bean Soup!, Member BrookylnPark

This was delicious and warmed one up on a cold January day in Colorado. I believe the one cup of celery really made a difference in the flavor. I followed the directions exactly as written and served this with a loaf of homemade bread!
