Directions

  1. Pour water over navy beans in a large container to cover by several inches; soak 8 hours to overnight.
  2. Combine soaked beans, chicken broth, water, onion, celery, garlic, and bay leaf in a large pot; bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low and simmer, partially covered, until beans are almost tender, about 1 hour.

  4. Ladle about half the soup into a large bowl; pour soup into a blender, working in batches, filling blender no more than half full.
