White Bean Soup With Ham

Beans are not only great source of carbohydrates but can pride themselves with lucky charm as well. How many vegetables can do that?

As I lately have a little time, I had been searching on the web the other day. Looking to find new, intriguing thoughts, inspirational meals that I’ve never used before, to delight my family with. Hunting for a while unfortunately could not discover lots of interesting stuff. Right before I wanted to give up on it, I came upon this delicious and easy dessert by chance at Suncakemom. It seemed so delicious on its image, it required urgent actions.

It had been simple enough to imagine how it is made, how it tastes and how much my hubby will probably enjoy it. Mind you, it is very simple to keep happy the man when it comes to treats. Yes, I’m a lucky one. Or perhaps he is.Anyway, I visited the webpage and followed the simple instuctions that had been coupled with superb photographs of the process. It just makes life less difficult. I can imagine that it is a bit of a hassle to shoot snap shots down the middle of cooking in the kitchen because you ordinarily have gross hands so that i really appreciate the hard work she devote for making this post and recipe easily followed.

With that said I am inspired presenting my own recipe in the same way. Thanks for the thought.

I had been tweaking the main recipe to make it for the taste of my family. I’ve got to say it was an incredible success. They enjoyed the flavour, the thickness and loved having a treat like this during a hectic workweek. They quite simply asked for more, more and more. Hence the next occasion I am not going to make the same mistake. I am gonna multiply the volume to get them delighted.

Soak the beans according to instructions on packaging and belief.

Pour oil into a saucepan and heat it up.

Add the diced onion, celery, carrots and salt then mix them together well.

Saute the vegetables on high for 3-5 minutes until the onion gets a translucent/glassy look.

Turn the heat down to medium low and cook the mixture until the onion starts caramelizing, stirring occasionally for about 15-25 minutes. (optional)

Add garlic, black pepper, and tomato then mix it well. Cook it until garlic gives out its scent for about 2-5 minutes.

Add beans, paprika and the optional chorizo.

Fill it up with water, put the lid on and simmer it for about 60 to 90 minutes depending of the beans.

Ten minutes before the soup is done, add carrots and other vegetables like kale, cauliflower, brussels sprouts or broccoli then turn the heat up and bring it to boil.

When the soup starts to boil lower the heat and simmer it for 10 minutes or until the the desired texture of vegetables is reached.

Take the soup off heat and let it cool down a bit before serving, for about 20 minutes.
