White Bean Soup

This is one of our favorite soups. Today, my friend Tom told me he lost his copy of my recipe, and I told him to get it from this blog. Low and behold, it wasn't here, until now. Sorry about that. This is both fast and easy to prepare, and delicous and healthy.

White Bean Soup

¼ c. vegetable oil
1 onion, chopped
2 stalks celery, diced
1 heaping T. bottled minced garlic
1 ham slice, diced
24 oz chicken broth
4 cans white beans, drained
Salt and pepper

Heat vegetable oil in large pan or Dutch oven. Sauté onion and celery until soft. Add garlic and ham, stir and simmer until heated thru. Add chicken broth and beans, heat to simmer. Simmer soup for 5 minutes and add salt and pepper to taste. 6 – 8 servings.
