Ham and Bean Soup Recipe Reviews - Allrecipes.com (Pg. 10)
Reviewed: Mar. 30, 2008
OUTSTANDING! This is one of the best soups we've ever had, and we LOVE soup! I made just a few minor changes -- I added a 15 oz. can of black beans for color, and doubled the amount of ham. I used the leftovers from our smoked Easter ham, cubing most of it, but also ground up some of the ham for texture. I also doubled the vegetables. My husband's a hunter, so we have a LOT of venison polish sausage -- I used that instead of the bratwurst, cut into small cubes. My husband has made me swear this will ALWAYS be in our freezer!

Great recipe!! Instead of bratwurst I used kielbasa and it came out perfectly. This was my first time cooking with beans and the recipe was easy and tasty!

Great soup. Used dry lima beans in lieu of beans in the recipe. Also substituted 16 oz. jar of medium hot chunky salsa for tomatoes , added 2 cups of chicken broth, extra carrots (1 1/4 cups), 1 cup sweet onions, 1 cup of corn, 2 tsp. of cajun spice and 1 cup of blush wine. This will be added to my list of favorite soups. We thoroughly enjoyed it.

Awesome recipe with a few minor changes. I used a bag of 16 bean soup and followed the directions for cooking the beans. I didn't have onions or green peppers, used 8 oz. cubed ham and 4 bratwursts and instead of the canned tomatoes, I used salsa which has the onions and peppers in it. When I added the salsa with 30 minutes left on the clock, I also added a bag of Trader Joe's roasted sweet corn and about 3/4 cups of cooked Lunenburg rice (wild and brown mix). My family devoured this quickly and my husband said on a scale of 1 to 10, he would give it an 8.5 - great for someone who usually isn't a big soup person. It was thick and more like a stew, but well received.

Perfect recipe because I didn't have time to soak the beans overnight. I used ham hocks for great flavored broth, 1 can of tomatoes and eliminated the spices with heat for a traditional tasting bean soup that wasn't mushy and looked appetizing. Will keep this as my standard preparation method for dried beans.
