I love a meal you can toss in the crock pot and let it go for hours without having to fuss over the pot.  We always freeze our leftover ham bones to use in soups like this one.

You can find the 15 bean soup mix in the dry bean aisle at the grocery store.

Rinse and sort beans. Cover with water and soak the beans overnight.  Just toss the seasoning packet in the trash.

The next morning chop the vegetables.

Add the ham hock, beans, celery onion, bay leaves, garlic, thyme, chicken broth, salt, and pepper to the slow cooker.  

Set and cook on low for about 8 hours or until the beans are tender! Or cook on high for 4 – 5 hours. Not all slow cookers cook the same, so that cooking time might vary.

Ham and bean soup is just one of those comfort foods everyone loves!

  5. We love 15 bean soup, and I like that you can make it as heavy or light as you like. Depending on the season and how filling you want it to be.

    Now that my daughter is a vegetarian, we make this with a vegetable base, and then about an hour before we eat I dip hers out and then add our ham. It’s not as flavorful to do it this way, but otherwise I need to hook up 2 crock pots. Perhaps when she’s not going to be home for the evening we can try your recipe because it looks and sounds delicious!5 stars
