Are you craving a savory and soothing meal with a slightly smoky flavor? The Large Family Easy Slow Cooker Ham and Bone Soup is just what you need! Eat it for lunch, dinner, or even a snack when you want something light and good for you.
- 1 meaty ham bone
- 3 potatoes, diced
- 2 cups carrots, sliced
- 2 small onions, diced
- 2 (15 ounce) cans cannellini beans, drained and rinsed
- 8 cups chicken broth or water
- 2 bay leaves
- ½ teaspoon garlic powder
- ½ teaspoon thyme leaves
- ½ teaspoon black pepper
Combine all of the ingredients in a large slow cooker. Stir everything around the hambone to combine.
Place the lid on the slow cooker and cook on low for 9 to 10 hours or cook on the high setting for 4 to 6 hours.
Before serving, remove the hambone and bay leaves. Remove the meat from the bone, cut the meat into bite size pieces, and return to the soup.
Freezer Tip: Cool the cooked soup and place in freezer safe bags or airtight containers for up to 3 months. To prepare: For best results, thaw the soup in the refrigerator overnight. Warm in a stockpot over medium heat on the stovetop or in the microwave.
