I love soups, stews and chilis (like this one) in the colder months. You just can’t beat a nice steamy and delicious bowl of Navy Bean soup when it’s chilly outside.

This soup is a wonderful healthy comfort food recipe. Navy Beans are so good for you!

This nummy soup has a very rich full flavor thanks to the addition of the smoky ham and navy beans.

Navy Bean Soup Recipe Notes:

Do you have a leftover Hambone you need to use up?

You can make your own bone broth from your leftover bones! It’s easiest to do in an instant pot if you have one. We show you how in our instant pot Bone Broth recipe Or Our Hambone Soup from leftovers recipe is all about using your stock pot right on your stove to make a delicious healthy broth or soup base.

If not, Chicken broth or stock will work well too. 🙂

This soup recipe is easy to make in just a few minutes of work for you. No matter which method you use Navy bean soup is worth the work.

Slow Cooker Method:

  1. Chop up the ham and veggies.
  2. Then toss in some seasonings and the dried Navy beans.
  3. Now let it simmer away for about 6 hours and enjoy the divine smell all day long.

I added carrots, celery, onion, and garlic to this soup because I like lots of variety in my soups. You can certainly be creative and add whatever seasonings and vegetables that you like in order to make it your own creation.

That’s the beauty of the crockpot. It’s so easy to invent new recipes and add new flavors in. Mom likes Sweet Mesquite or McCormick’s Smokehouse Maple in her Instant Pot Ham Bean Soup. That smokiness you know? Throw some in if it’s what you like too.
