  • 1 medium onion, diced
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 cans (14.5 ounces each) diced tomatoes and juice
  • 1 cup frozen baby lima beans, cooked and drained
  • 1/2 cup corn kernels
  • 2 to 3 cans (15 ounces each) white beans (Great Northern, Navy, etc.) , drained
  • salt and pepper, to taste


In a 4 to 6-quart slow cooker, combine ham hocks or ham bone, vegetable broth, carrots, celery, and onion. Cover and cook on HIGH for 4 hours or LOW for 8 hours, or until vegetables are tender.

Lots of WOWS, Member kittymass

I served this in our retirement center and people were asking for the recipe. Everyone loved it, not like most bean soups which are loaded with beans this is a hearty one dish meal. Tons of flavor. I added more diced ham and carrots also.
