"I was looking for a good use of a ham bone without the heavy cream of a potato soup. I made use of a few other recipes to come up with one that I thought my husband and I would like. I think it is important to start with the three basics: onion, celery, and carrots. In addition, you can add a variety of different vegetables to suit your taste or depending on what you have in the house at the time."

Very good soup. Love a recipe that allows you to make so many revisions with what you have on hand. Added chopped kale & small pasta noodles. Stewed tomatoes versus chopped tomatoes added more flavor as well.
Pretty good! I had a ham bone and needed to use it, so I did this recipe with what I had on hand. I cooked it on the stove on high for 2 hours and it came out great. My only alterations were to use 6 medium potatos and I mashed some of them to give a creamier texture to the soup, just a preference. I did not have corn so I omitted that. Pretty good. I only gave it 4 stars because it was saltier than I would have liked, which I did notice the ham itself was saltier than others I have purchased so that could be at fault, but the next time I make this I will use less bouillon. I will will definitely make this again.
Excellent Soup and even better the next day! I added a can of navy beans, 1/2 cup of barley, 1/2 tsp of thyme, coriander, chilli pepper, paprika and marjoram and a bay leaf. Used a can of stewed tomatoes instead of the tomatoe sauce.
This was a great basic soup recipe. I didn't have time for the crock pot though so i just cooked it for 1-1/2 hours on the stove top. Turned out very good!
Thank you for submitting a delicious and fabulous base recipe. I am glad to have found it since we had a large ham bone with a lot of meat left on it that I had simmered the heck out of and then had to figure out how to use. Vegetable soup is supposed to be forgiving and to use up what one has in the house, and this particular recipe is true to that principle. I had no bacon and no celery. I think all soup is best with celery, so would ordinarily use it (but vegetable soup is supposed to prevent one from needing to go to the store so I didn't). Instead of peeling and chopping carrots and potatoes, which I ordinarily would do, I used 2 bags of frozen soup vegetables. Then omitted the frozen corn because the vegetables included corn as well as the carrots and potatoes. I don't use bouillon (too much sodium) and somehow we had three open low sodium organic chicken broth boxes in the fridge to use up, so in they went. Needed to use half a head of cabbage, so I sauteed it with the onion and garlic til done. Wanted to give it a minestrone-effect so added the remnants of a box of whole wheat spaghetti and a drained can of organic garbanzo beans. Then seasoned with a bit of dried oregano and basil. I apologize for changing the recipe and then rating my own, but again the whole point of vegetable soup is to improvise and use the leftovers. We enjoyed this more than I could ever tell. For speed, just cooked on the stove top. Again, thanks for a fabulous base recipe.
Really good soup! I made some adjustments -- used just 6 cups of chicken broth (no water, no bouillon) and some Better than Bouillon base to give it some flavor. I also added some more garlic cloves,some sherry, garlic power, onion powder, herbamare (organic sea salt infused with herbs) and some extra carrots and one less potato. Topped it with a little bit of grated gruyere. Scrumptious!
I just made this wonderful soup and it is so flavorful. I didn't use bacon grease but everything else is beautiful. Good job!
