Zesty Ham and Bean Soup

90 mins (prep 15, cooking 75)
15 ingredients
6 servings
I had some ham left over from another meal and wanted to use it up, so I went to the pantry to see what kind of a soup I could throw together. The following recipe is what I came up with, and if I say so myself, it came out hearty and delicious! You may of course use different kinds of beans or spices as well as frozen carrots and/or canned tomatoes, but I prefer to use fresh ingredients when I have them on hand. Enjoy!
